My Father used to say:
“Son, ain’t nothing wrong with walking away from a fight, especially if it’s over something stupid. Always defend yourself & Never walk away from a fight with your back turned. It’s a lot of suckers in the world that will sucker punch you with your back turned.
Walk off from a stupid fight, facing a stupid joker. If that joker stupid enough to still come at you & you done walked away from the fight, you put them stupid dummies on his head & get on that bicycle like I taught you like Muhammad Ali. Don’t stay stationary…stick & move like a butterfly & stang like a bee, hit that joker so many times, he see 3.”
