One of my favorite sayings…

“When your bow is broken and your last arrow spent, then shoot, shoot with your whole heart.” —Roger Zelazny

To me this is about courage, not the absence of fear but rather the strength to move forward in the presence of fear as it surrounds you.

I believe it’s also a comment on being a martial artist at your core, not because you put on fancy pajamas and swing a weapon around in some prearranged pattern but that you’ve internalized your martial art so completely that you’ve blurred the line between where you end and the martial artist begins.
