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]

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.

“It is a terrible thing to teach children to kill is it not?”  Remo asked.
“It is the worst of all crimes because it not only robs the present of life, it robs the future of hope.”  [Chiun replied]

“Anyway, I got this letter and it said, ‘All of us carry our crosses and our destinies like fools.  But occasionally we must succumb to logic.  And the logic of the situation is that our love would destroy us.  If we could only shake our duties off like old dust.  But we cannot.’ “
Remo leaned back, sinking into the flowers, surprised that the letter came back into his mind word for word.  He was happy he still remembered.
” ‘We gave each other an hour and a promise.  Let us cherish that hour in the small places that keep us kind.  Do not let your enemies destroy that.  For as surely as the Jordan flows, we shall, if we maintain our goodness, meet again in the morning that never ends.  This is our promise that we will keep.’ “

“The ideal man,” Remo said, “has a calm within him, a peace that is linked to the forces of the world.  The ideal man seeks no unnecessary danger but accepts whatever danger there is, knowing that death is a natural part of life, knowing that it is how he dies, not when, that matters.  I see the ideal man capable of sitting quietly for hours, his long, thin hands resting at peace upon his robes.  I see the ideal man in command of his craft and doing what he must do as well as man can do it.  I see the ideal man as a teacher of someone he loves.”
