Tao of the Day  
I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down

Fall down 7 times, get up 8.

Be pushed, turn.

Oh nice. Is that one yours? Lots of extra points for hyper-efficient elite aphorism!

I cannot claim that as my own. It's the distillation of what my judo teacher used to say about application of force.

I haven't seen it, but the plot synopsis seems to suggest Luke didn't get to get up the 8th time... is that your point?

The way the movie is shot, he seems to get up a lot more than eight times, although the number of actual scenes where he's picking himself up may be less than eight. At least I understood it that way.

Darn those literal critics!
