“Every great knight has weaknesses. You will be no different. Where there are peaks, there will be valleys. You can be angry with yourself when you are disappointed, but let those feelings pass over and through you. Like a dead branch falling from a tree, which then decomposes and nourishes the soil, your disappointments can transform into the elements of change and growth. You will make mistakes, and the people you love will make mistakes. But remember to judge yourself not at your worst but at your best. A knight knows that ‘success’ is mostly easily measured by how he handles his disappointments.”- From Ethan Hawke’s Rules for a Knight
