Washington is gripped by crab-in-the-bucket syndrome. And there's no cure in sight. Put a single crab in an uncovered bucket, and it will find a way to climb up and out on its own. Put a dozen crabs in a bucket, and 11 will fight with all their might to pull down the striver who attempts escape.
I am not an educated man. I never had an opportunity to learn anything except how to fight.
The biggest way I stay motivated is to run with a group of friends. Sometimes it's hard to get going by yourself, but if you have a plan and a meeting time, you know this run will happen for sure. It's a way to have fun - while also getting in a workout. Plus it distracts from pain, helps you fight fatigue, and gives you that extra push.

You can lay down and die, or you can get up and fight, but that's it - there's no turning back.
We did not fight the Americans or the Europeans. We fight only the Israeli enemy that took our homes and homeland.
I was bullied by a few people who were much older than me. I went to camp to learn boxing. I was 12, and my coach was 24. I felt like if I could fight him, I could stand up to anyone.
Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel.
Part of the secret of a success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.
I started to make a study of the art of war and revolution and, whilst abroad, underwent a course in military training. If there was to be guerrilla warfare, I wanted to be able to stand and fight with my people and to share the hazards of war with them.
My trainer don't tell me nothing between rounds. I don't allow him to. I fight the fight. All I want to know is did I win the round. It's too late for advice.
Americans love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle.
George S. Patton
If there be no enemy there's no fight. If no fight, no victory and if no victory there is no crown.
