In times of crisis, an authentic education is necessary.
The best human values often arise from adversity and difficulty.
The most effective way to live is to live like a warrior.
A warrior is someone who dedicates his life to the art of peace, which is based on establishing harmony and beauty and defending life. Polish your spirit and train your body tirelessly for this sole purpose.
Throw away the thoughts that limit you and return to true emptiness.
Situate yourself in the middle of the Great Void. This is the secret of the warrior's way.
The way of the warrior has two pillars: love and knowledge. And it is based on respect, honor and sincerity.
The true warrior is invincible because he does not fight with anyone. To overcome means to defeat the idea of dispute that we harbor in our mind.
The real victory is about yourself.
A warrior is always on the threshold between life and death, can not show lack of preparation or weaknesses before an opponent.
A warrior chooses a path with heart, any path with heart, and follows it, and then rejoices and laughs.
He knows that his life will be over too soon. He knows, therefore, that nothing is more important than the rest.
He has no choice, that is his freedom.
The quality of the warrior gives rise to natural beauty. The subtle techniques of a warrior arise as naturally as spring, summer, autumn and winter appear.
The quality of the warrior is nothing other than the vitality that sustains all life.
The ordinary man is either a winner or a loser and, depending on it, becomes a persecutor or victim. These two conditions do not exist for a warrior. His clarity of spirit dissipates the illusion of victory, defeat or suffering.
When a warrior decides to do something, he must go to the end, accepting responsibility for what he does. Whatever you do, you must first know why you do it, and then move on with your actions, without hesitation or remorse.
Each act is unique and definitive, the warrior leaves no place for fear and doubt.
When someone embarks on the path of the warrior, little by little he realizes that ordinary life has been left behind forever. The means of the ordinary world no longer serve as support and must adopt a new way of life to survive.
Every bit of knowledge that becomes power has death as a central force.
Death gives the final touch; everything that death touches, truly becomes power.
The warrior's way leads nowhere ... except to his own being.
