If you can’t control yourself, then you can’t control a damn thing in this world.
Otis: Each bead has its place, part of a larger design. And you gotta pay attention because if you mess up, and you don’t notice till later, you gotta undo hours… days… even months of work. It’s no joke. It takes years to master the art of beadwork, and each year you gotta remaster it again.
Tyrone: You gotta make a new one every year?
Otis: Now every year you’re a new person, Son. So, we spend that time working on a new suit. Some give up and never finish. There’s a room over there full of failure stories; it would drive a man crazy. But not the man with patience, diligence, and grace. Control of your actions, Son. If you can’t control yourself, then you can’t control a damn thing in this world. This regalia… it helps us find that control and with it comes the strength we need.
[Tyrone search through the room and finds a black cloak]
