46. You never lose the fight when you swing back at the bully.

You always win the most important thing - the knowledge that your self respect can survive getting the snot kicked out of you. The bully can't give you that self respect, you can only give that to yourself (and always without permission).

I learned this when I was six years old. It's embarrassing to watch sixty- and seventy-year-old Congresspeople who still haven't puzzled that fact of life out. But that's what spending too much time playing tactical politics does to a person's perspective.
