On Dune and Karate


“Mood? What has mood to do with it? You fight when the necessity arises – no matter the mood! Mood’s a thing for cattle or making love or playing music. It’s not for fighting.” – Halleck, troubadour warrior in Dune by Frank Herbert

When all the enthusiasm is spent in learning;when you stop relying on mood and start training out of necessity or in a systematic way i think that that’s when the real training starts; – – – And i’m talking about martial arts – though this quote can still be applied in general terms to anything one is pursuing.
