Citações Steven Pressfield

„Resistance has no conscience.“

—  Steven Pressfield, livro The War of Art

The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles

„Give them this: they were tough. Tougher than the Scyths and Getai, for all their savage valor, and tougher than the Amazons, despite their dash and dazzle.“

—  Steven Pressfield, livro Last of the Amazons

Damon p. 308
Last of the Amazons (2002)
Contexto: The foe fell back. Our companies pushed through. For the time it takes to count to five hundred, I thought we might even conquer. For now the mulishness of the Athenian Soldier-farmer, the pigheaded refusal to yield which had at first been scorned by his betters-now this shone to the fore. By the gods, these clodkickers had learned how to fight! [... ] They no longer fell apart at the apparition of cowardice among their comrades or themselves, but had come to understand that the same man may play the craven in the morning and the hero in the afternoon. Give them this: they were tough. Tougher than the Scyths and Getai, for all their savage valor, and tougher than the Amazons, despite their dash and dazzle.
