clean on him is his weapon. He doesn't worry about what workout to do---
his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing
The True Believer doesn't care 'how hard it is'; he knows he either wins or he
He doesn't go home at 1700; he is home. He knows only the 'Cause.' Now, who
wants to quit?"
