'The greatest victor wins without a battle...
But as long as there be a foe, value him,
respect him, measure him, be humble toward him:
Let him not strip from you, however strong he be,
compassion, the one wealth that can afford him.'
'Who do you imagine to be strong or powerful?
It is he who masters himself when angry.'
'The fate of the person who harmed you,
whether they be alive or dead,
does not matter nearly as much as what you carry
in your heart.'
