A Separate Reality: Further Conversations with Don Juan (1971) by Carlos Castaneda - "Once you decide something put all your petty fears away. Your decision should vanquish them. I will tell you time and time again, the most effective way to live is as a warrior.

That's the warrior's way." - Don Juan
