Re: •°o*Everyday is a Journey for the Warrior, and the Journey is Home/ the Castle, v
 
A true warrior is someone who strives to be the best they can be at all things (living life to its fullest) and not necessarily as someone who has prowess in the physical/martial arts of battle, but also in the arts of the psychological, mental and spiritual so that one may have the discipline to change our own behaviour to that of living honourable and in a sacred manner.

A person who lives with honour is noble.

A warrior is someone who lives to a strict code of honour AND lives life to the fullest in full awareness and without fear of the unpredictable nature of life and of the constant presence of death.

Death is not to be seen as something to be feared but only another part of the journey and therefore as with all things it is to be faced with honour.

in the Castle we draw inspiration from the great King Leonidas who has achieved immortality by his true warrior spirit that he showed for his country and his people.




one of his inspiring quotes for all ages:

"In the end, a warrior's true strength is the warrior next to him. So give respect and honor to him, and it will be returned to you. First, you fight with your head."


here is a list of our great Castle's Warriors:


==================


Clay Death

Residence:





our official motto:

"Mercilessly we plow the dust of stars, blown about us by the swift desert wind as we drink the universe in a glass of rain. And we, the ultimate masters of the battlefield, take anything that we rest our eyes on."


memo to opposition: no retreat and no surrender, only pray for death.

Work has a very irritating way of getting in the way of the important things sometimes doesn't it? :sad:

Yes of course, - but they're pretty strict with Internet usage where I work. Head Office can track peoples' Internet usage, and it's a disciplinary offence - could even lead to getting the sack :tape: so much as I love tennis, I need to pay my mortgage more - so I can't do it too often :shrug:

they monitor our computer use. Foruming is sackable. I can't even livescore because it crashes our slow internet :(

Last month I racked up a massive phone bill using the internet on my phone. I need a blackberry when my contract runs out.

There needs to be disguise button on here, so if your boss peers is in the vicinity of your screen you can hit it and it will change the screen to display an Excel graph.
