“I happen to believe that everybody in this world, at one point in their life, needs an ass kicking. It is an enlightening experience getting your ass kicked. When I got mine, I didn’t enjoy it, but it was a learning experience.”
– Anthony Bourdain
“Nothing cleanses the soul like getting your ass thoroughly kicked.” -Woody Hayes
Everybody knows it. Everybody has gone through it. But not everyone understands or values getting one’s butt kicked. Metaphorically speaking. I’m not advocating violence. But getting knocked down, can make one stronger. Also, a round of ass-kicking can make one humble. If you let it.
