          "When it comes time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home." - Chief Aupumut

                  Shoot for the moon and if you miss you wil still be in the stars
                  Death is only the beginning
                  life everyday as if it is your last
                  If there was no death there would be no war
                  Peace is not a abscence of war but rather war a abscence of peace
                  Courage is just holding on for one second longer
                  True kendo is the abscence of mind

                  sorry about the spelling I wrote these when I was exhausted.

                      I like the sentence that kenichi ishida ends his hachi dan essay with at the end of that documentary

                      "the most important thing in kendo is to have a flexible mind, which allows you to recognize your own weaknesses, and overcome them through practice"

                      its practical, and doesnt get too metaphysical for my tastes.

                        Every morning in the Africa plains a lion wakes up and knows he must run faster than the slowest Gazelle to survive.

                        Doesn't matter who you are, when you wake up, you better be running!"

                            One day, someone showed me a glass of water that was half full. And he said, "Is it half full or half empty?" So I drank the water. No more problem. ~Alexander Jodorowsky

                            The future influences the present just as much as the past. ~Friedrich Nietzsche
                            In general people experience their present naively, as it were, without being able to form an estimate of its contents; they have first to put themselves at a distance from it - the present, that is to say, must have become the past - before it can yield points of vantage from which to judge the future. ~Sigmund Freud

                            The fish trap exists because of the fish. Once you've gotten the fish you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit. Once you've gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words exist because of meaning. Once you've gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can talk with him? ~Chuang Tzu
