“انصت إلّي. إنك لست غريبًا في أوموفيا وتعلم أن آباءنا قد قرروا أنه قبل أن نزرع أي محصول في الأرض علينا أن نكرس أسبوعًا لا يتفوّه فيه الشخص بكلمة نابية لجاره. إننا نعيش في سلام مع بني جلدتنا لنكرم آلهة الأرض العظيمة التي لا تنمو محاصيلنا دون بركتها. لقد أتيت شرًا عظيمًا” ― Chinua Achebe,

“The world is large,” said Okonkwo. “I have even heard that in some tribes a man’s children belong to his wife and her family.” “That cannot be,” said Machi. “You might as well say that the woman lies on top of the man when they are making the babies.” ― Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart

Voir et regarder

On gagne une bataille en connaissant le rythme de l’ennemi, et en utilisant un rythme auquel il ne s’attendait pas.

Qu’il s’agisse d’un corps grand ou d’un corps petit, on doit posséder un esprit droit et il est important de conserver un esprit dégagé de tout sentiment de faiblesse vis-à-vis de soi-même.


Voir et regarder
Entre voir et regarder, Voir est plus important que regarder. L’essentiel dans la tactique est de voir ce qui est éloigné comme si c’était proche et de de voir ce qui est proche comme si c’était éloigné.


– Miyamoto Musashi
