Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Quotes 253 . Today the quote is ... we have another
one by Mark Twain and I've done a number by him before. He always has a lot of good
quotes. Remember he's one of the most famous classic American novelist. So many,
many people know him and you might even be familiar with some of his quotes. But
anyway here's the quote we're going to cover today." It's not the size of the dog
in the fight. It is the size of the fight in the dog"
Okay. Let's take a look at the note here. What Mark Twain means by this quote is
it's not the size of your enemy or how immense or how large one's problems or
obstacles are that one must face in life that will determine one's success or
one's failure. Rather the qualities that will lead one to defeat an enemy or gain
success or victory are one's spirit, determination, and passion. So that's what
it means. So here when we say the fight. The fight could be against an opponent.
It could be directly against an enemy. But it could also be against some other
problems that you have in life too. This could really refer to all of that. All
right. Let's continue here. Another meaning of the word fight in, in English
is one's energy and determination not to give up and to continue to push towards
one's goals. So when you look at the quote again and they say it's not the
size of the dog in the fight. Well here the first fight simply means battle. But
the second fight actually means the one I'm covering here. It means you're
determined, determination your passion your will. Things like that. That make you
push ahead. They give you your ambition. That give you your drive. That's the....
That's what the second fight here means. All right. Let's continue. You sometimes
hear people say does he have any fight left in him ? Meaning does
still have any spirit or determination to push ahead to try to win to try to
conquer ? Or he still has some fight in him. Sometimes we say that, like
somebody's not willing to give up yet. They're still trying to win. They're
still trying to push ahead. So you know, watch out. All right. We also say someone
is a fighter. This is true. As in one refuses to be defeated. So they will just
keep going no matter what. Doctors will sometimes talk about
whether a patient is a fighter. A patient who is a fighter has a much greater
chance of survival in a life- threatening operation.
Yeah. So that's really important. If you ended up in that sort of situation.
Those that are not a fighter might give up more easily. They might just let go.
But a fighter he'll try to hold on. He'll try to push it. You know, maybe
sometimes that makes all the difference in whether you can survive some
operations like this. Anyway, I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. I hope it was
food for thought. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
