„If one thinks only of winning, a sordid victory will be worse than a defeat. For the most part, it becomes a squalid defeat.“

—  Tsunetomo Yamamoto Samurai 1659 - 1719
Context: People with intelligence will use it to fashion things both true and false and will try to push through whatever they want with their clever reasoning. This is injury from intelligence. Nothing you do will have effect if you do not use truth. In affairs like law suits or even in arguments, by losing quickly one will lose in fine fashion. It is like sumo. If one thinks only of winning, a sordid victory will be worse than a defeat. For the most part, it becomes a squalid defeat.
