“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.”

Sun Tzu
The Art of War

“[Janapatrick] Barroga, who had arrived at [Combat Outpost] Keating only two days earlier and who had never before been in combat, turned to him with a question. ‘Hey Sergeant,’ Barroga asked, ‘are these attacks always this bad?’”

“‘No dude, not at all,’ Breeding declared emphatically, ‘they have never been this bad.’”

“‘Well, is everything gonna be OK?’ asked Barroga, unable to connect the dots.”

“In his eighteen years in the Army, John Breeding had never been a dispenser of bullshit. He saw no need to change now. ‘I don't know if we're going to get out of this one,’ he replied, looking Barroga in the eye, ‘all I can tell you is that, if we go, we're taking some of these Mother Fucker's with us.’”

“When climbing outdoors, the beauty of movement is very important for me. Very often I can find it on some rocks that a lot of people would think of as very crappy. But the beauty of movement is there, the interesting moves you need to really ponder about for hours, imagining the sequence and planning how to do it. Also very often a solid looking wall turns out to be very stupid from the climber's point of view.”
