BUSHIDO 5

May 31, 2017

As it laid great stress on its proper use, so did it denounce and abhor its misuse. A dastard or a braggart was  he who brandished his weapon on undeserved occasions. A self-possessed man knows the right time to use it, and such times come but rarely. The popular apothegm-- 'To be beaten is to conquer,' meaning true conquest consists in not opposing a riotous foe; and 'The best won victory is that obtained without shedding of blood,' and others of similar import--will show that after all the ultimate ideal of knighthood was PEACE.
