A Few (More) Words From...Miyamoto Musashi

"Deliberately, with a patient spirit, absorb the virtue of all this, from time to time raising your hand in combat.  Maintain this spirit whenever you cross swords with an enemy.

Step by step walk the thousand mile road.

Study strategy over the years and achieve the spirit of the warrior.  Today is victory of yourself of yesterday; tomorrow is your victory over lesser men."

- Miyamoto Musashi, The Water Book, A Book of Five Rings

  1. I am one of those lesser men, so I might take umbrage at that. :)

    As for that bum I see in the mirror each morning - yep, he needs to be brought under control.

    And we are all works in progress, Friend. Every one of us.
