Lupta. O joaca sau o condamnare?

Lupta. Uneori este un joc pur si simplu, alte ori este cu adevarat mortala. Cu toate acestea, atunci cand animalele se lupta exista ceva care ne atrage sa ne uitam, in ciuda rezultatului potential fatal. Poate ca este ceva visceral si primar in instinctele noastre sau poate doar ne place sa ne uitam la o bataie de moda veche cu gheare si colti. Mai bine sa lupti pentru ceva decat sa mori pentru nimic

Cine stie raspunsul corect?! Iata mostre surprinse in cateva fotografii de pe site-ul biblioteca de fotgorafii Flickr ce apartin userului tambako the jaguar. Va las sa va delectati si cu cateva citate despre lupta apartinand unor personalitati ale vremurilor trecute sau prezente. Le las in engleza nu din snobism, ci pentru ca mi se pare ca pierd din mesaj prin traducere:

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses – behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights. Muhammad Ali

To fight and conquer in all our battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting. Sun Tzu

No matter how much cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens. Abraham Lincoln

It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog. Mark Twain

Better to fight for something than live for nothing. George S. Patton

You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war. Napoleon Bonaparte

You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it. Margaret Thatcher

All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one… characteristic we must posses if we are to face the future as finishers. Henry David Thoreau

In a battle all you need to make you fight is a little hot blood and the knowledge that it’s more dangerous to lose than to win. George Bernard Shaw
