"As a friend once said, 'America is 98% sheep. They have two modes, graze and stampede. Wolves are one percent, and one-half percent are sheepdogs. The sheep don't want the sheepdogs around until the wolves come. When the wolves come, they stop grazing, stampede, and wonder where the sheepdogs are...'
Warriors are best described as sheepdogs. They are forgotten about until the wolves come. They're not really thought of until the wolves come around. Everyone wants to know where the sheepdogs are. I'm content to be put up on a shelf until the wolves come out. They'll come out again."
