The Way of the Warrior is not seen in those knights inclined to rudeness, lawlessness, violence, and immorality. It is not seen in that learning inclined to mindless recitation and frivolous, soft philosophy. True knights study true learning, cultivate their bodies, straighten their hearts, govern their country, and works towards peace under Heaven. That is the Way of the Warrior.
