Fate is in Heaven, the armor is on the breast, success is with the legs. Go to the battlefield firmly confident of victory, and you will come home with no wounds whatever. Engage in combat fully determined to die and you will be alive; wish to survive in the battle and you will surely meet death. When you leave the house determined not to see it again you will come home safely; when you have any thought of returning you will not return. You may not be in the wrong to think that the world is always subject to change, but the warrior must not entertain this way of thinking, for his fate is always determined.

Uesugi Kenshin (1530-1578)1

if only we could have this kind of attitude when we step into battle. i am a believer in the way... yet i can only dream of this type of resolve. i take a vow to live as they. fight the unseen war, live the unseen life.
if fridays were this good everyweek.. i'd be broke by next week. ho hum... money is only good for my time on earth...
