But Flesh and Blood

The wise man is not made of Iron and Stone, But Flesh and Blood.

Ancient Philosophy.

Anything ever done was done by a human being, meaning it is humanly possible for everyone to do if they put their mind to it. We’re all flesh and blood.

We all have fears, we all have desires, We all have emotions.

It’s not the absence of these emotions that make people great, it’s controlling them that does.

You can’t be courageous without fear, You can’t be disciplined without desire.

Controlling these natural responses and doing what needs to be done is what makes one great, is how one achieves great thingsā€¦

Mastering these natural desires is itself a great achievement.

Remember flesh and blood is all that is needed.
