“The first virtue in a soldier is endurance of fatigue; courage is only the second virtue.”

People praise the hare for his speed and quickness to charge forward. Many are envious of what the hare is able to accomplish. The hare is quick to explore and to discover new areas; to excel in the sprint and reach an area before others. The hare revels in the glory of its success and will often look with condescension at those who have not yet reached the checkpoint. The hare can take hold of any prize it desires, for the hare reaches it first. The hare is a courageous creature that runs rabid; a paltry number can keep its pace and few can pass it in the path.

A young turtle took the time to understand the map before the sprint. He moves slowly, but surely. He takes longer to decide which road is more efficient and profitable. People forgot about him long ago. He, however, is prepared for the war and hopefully he gets there before the hares run circles around each other and lose too many battles. For hares do not understand. They have not brought a shield like the turtle did; their only weapon is their speed which will soon be sapped from their bones. They will be quick to flee from the battlefield as their endurance no longer exists. When they turn and run like the cowards they are, they’ll be staring at the turtle who is blocking their way. Fear and despair will creep into their hearts as the turtle nibbles at their only resource left: hope. He’ll take his time of course. This is a young turtle’s art of war.


I need no title to prove I can lead my obscure army into becoming the brightest force. A decisive victory will demolish their resistance.

“I made all my generals out of mud.”



Mistakes are a mystery. Is it possible to fully understand? They are both my hope and affliction. It’s impossible to find a definition. There’s always more to describe and no matter how great your memory is, you’ll forget sometimes and have to look them up again.

“Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools.”



“Now, can I get an encore, do you want more?”

“When you first come in the game, they try to play you
Then you drop a couple of hits, look how they wave to you”

“Veni, vidi, vici.”

“Lights out.” That’s what I’ll tell all the kids who think they can disrespect others. Put them in their place.

“We deliver.”



“When you surround an army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard.”

A critical error. Is my army actually desperate?

“Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.”




“Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.”

What are the chances of lightning striking the same place twice?

“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity”



“One may know how to conquer without being able to do it. ”

What do I know? What can I do?



“To see victory only when it is within the ken of the common herd is not the acme of excellence.”

I’ve noticed I tend to say, “I see.” Often, however, I’m actually blind, and it’s usually when the answer is something simple. After all, if the answer is a(in) plain cite doesn’t that mean I’m stating the obvious and wasting my words? What can I see?



So many C’s. Command and conquer. There is only victory in my visions.

“What is essential in war is victory, not prolonged operations.”

Don’t be afraid to end the war and do not gloat before a victory. See and seize it.
