I believe there’s a hero in all of us that keeps us honest, noble and finally allows us to die with pride. Even though sometimes we have to be steady and give up the things we want the most. Even our dreams.
You see Jesus in Gethsemane and believe your trial is the same as His. Those five in the pit are suffering too, just like Jesus, but they don’t have your pride. They would never compare themselves to Jesus. Do you have the right to make them suffer? I heard the cries of suffering in this same cell. And I acted.[to Rodrigues]
There comes a point where a reasonable man will swallow his pride and admit that he’s made a terrible mistake. The truth is, I was never a reasonable man.
The night of the fight, you may feel a slight sting. That’s pride f*****g with you. F*** pride. Pride only hurts. It never helps. You fight through that s***.
