Young men should discipline themselves rigorously in attention and courage. This will be accomplished if only courage is fixed in one’s heart. If one’s sword is broken, he will strike the enemy with his hands. If his hands are cut off, he will press the enemy down with his shoulders. If his shoulders are cut away, he will bite through ten or fifteen enemy necks with his teeth. Courage is such a thing.
