Training is not knowledge and knowledge is not strength.  But combine knowledge with training and one will get strength.
   —  The Book Of Sinanju
[I have a large number of “quotes” in my journal which are simply attributed to “House of Sinanju”.  I am sure they are all (each) from one of the 70+ books in “The Destroyer” series (co-written by Richard Sapir & Warren Murphy) which I was reading back in the 1970’s.  I didn’t record which book each quote came out of at the time I found them.  So, I’m just leaving them as recorded.  If anyone finds the book with the quote in it, and lets me know, I will be happy to attribute the quote accurately.  —  KMAB]

“You will always be a child if you expect men to be more than they are.  If you are walking through the woods, you do not get angry at a tree that happened to grow up directly in your path.  The tree could not help it.  It existed.  You do not sit on the ground in front of that tree and lecture it.  You ignore it.  And if cannot ignore it, you remove it.  So you must act with people.  They are for the most part, like trees.  They do what they do because they are what they are.”
“And so I should ignore all those that I can and remove those that I can’t?”
“Now you are seeing the light of wisdom,” Chiun said, folding his hands in front of him with a movement as smooth as an underwater plant.
“Chiun, the world you give me is a world without morality.  Where nothing counts for anything except keeping your elbow straight and breathing right and attacking correctly.  You give me no morality and that makes my happy.  Smith gives me a shitpot full of morality and it disgusts me.  But, I like his world better than yours.”
Chiun shrugged, “That is because you do not understand the real meaning of my world.  I do not give you a world without morality.  I give you a world of total morality, but the only morality you totally control is your own.  Be moral.  You can do no greater thing in your life.”  He moved his arms around in a large slow circle.  “Try to make other people moral and you are trying to ignite ice with a match.”

From their novel: “The Destroyer #30: Muggers Blood

One does not ask for life.  But it is all you have and you must live it and honor it and at the right time surrender it with the dignity and grace befitting the best that is in you.

In the world you will find that men will do what men will do.  Learn to anticipate men and you learn to control men.  Learn also not to be anticipated.  Learn to be like the wind that blows from all sides, then men will look at you and never know what window of their soul to close.

True love is doing what is good for a person.   False love is doing only that which causes that person to love you.
