Role Models

Growing up I had two role models, Mr. Spock (played by Leonard Nimoy) from Star Trek and Kwai Chang Caine (played by David Carradine) from Kung Fu.

From Spock I learned:
The power of logic
Self control
Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few
Peace and long life
 
From Caine I learned:
To be at one with myself
Rarely become angry, but don't deny anger as it's part of human nature
"Learn more ways to preserve rather than destroy. Avoid rather than check. Check rather than hurt. Hurt rather than maim. Maim rather than kill. For all life is precious nor can any be replaced." - Master Kan
"The river seeks its own level. It will not fight the rock, it flows around it." - Master Po
 
From both I learned:
Think before you speak
