Favorite Bone Fracture Quotes

1. "Forget about winning and losing; forget about pride and pain. Let your opponent graze your skin and you smash into his flesh; let him smash into your flesh and you fracture his bones; let him fracture your bones and you take his life!

To put exercise in perspective, imagine this: sit with a group of hunter-gatherers from the African grasslands and explain to them that in our world we have so much food and so much free time that some of us run 26 miles in a day, simply for the sheer pleasure of it.

Throughout hominid history, if you're running 26 miles in a day, you're either very intent on eating someone or someone's very intent on eating you."
