    These quotes has changed my life to be a Warrior. I wished that I would of found them many years ago as I’m 70 years old. It is never to late to be a Warrior. We need to train our children to be Warriors because times are going to get tougher. I feel we have let our children down because most of them do not know how to deal with problems. What ever Warrior skills one can teach our children will improve our society for all of us. My life is better as a Warrior and it will be better for our children too.
