My quote for today comes from my favorite movie of all time, The Man from Snowy River (1982).
"What's the first thing you do when a horse bucks you off?"
"You don't let him beat you, you get straight back on."
That's an exchange from expert drover Clancy to young horseman Jim Craig. Jim has been kicked off the Harrison homestead on suspicion of stealing a valuable horse, and this is Clancy's way of telling him he needs to stop avoiding the problem and go prove he's innocent. This bit of advice has stood me well over the years -- my dad even quoted it to me when I broke my arm rollerskating at the age of 12 and said I would never skate again.
