„So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.“

— George Patton, Context: So as through a glass, and darkly The age long strife I see Where I fought in many guises, Many names, but always me. And I see not in my blindness What the objects were I wrought, But as God rules o'er our bickerings It was through His will I fought. So forever in the future, Shall I battle as of yore, Dying to be born a fighter, But to die again, once more.

„The ancients see me not, nor I, the ancients,
Though I see the ancients not, the Way they trod is before me,
Their Way before me, can I but follow.“

— Yi Hwang Korean Confucianism scholar 1501 - 1570
The old teacher never saw me; he lived long before my time. Though I may never meet him, I can see the road he traveled. With his wise road before me, what reason for me to stray?
