The true warrior’s greatest battle is the battle that lies within, the struggle to master the ego, to fight not for gain or glory, but to balance the scales of justice. Only when the mind is free of the concept of self can the hand strike swift and true.

"Be an example to your men, in your duty and in private life. Never spare yourself, and let the troops see that you don't in your endurance of fatigue and privation. Always be tactful and well-mannered and teach your subordinates to do the same. Avoid excessive sharpness or harshness of voice, which usually indicates the man who has shortcomings of his own to hide."


--Field Marshall Erwin Rommel

Of every One-Hundred men, Ten shouldn't even be there,

Eighty are nothing but targets,

Nine are real fighters...

We are lucky to have them...They make the battle,

Ah but the One, One of them is a Warrior...and He will bring the others back.


-Hericletus c. 500 B.C.
