"The experienced fighter withstands the insults; he knows the force of his fist, the ability of his blows. Before an unprepared opponent, he just looks him deeply into the eyes and wins, without need for a physical fight.
In so much as the Warrior learns with his spiritual master, the light of faith also shines in his eyes and he doesn't need to proof anything to anybody. He does not mind the agressive arguments of his adversary, saying that God is superstition, that miracles are tricks, hat believing in angels is running away from reality.
As the fighter, the Warrior of Light also knows his immense force; he never fights with those who do not deserve the honour of combat."
Excerpt of " The Manual of The Warrior of Light" by Paulo Coelho
