„Military affairs are not matters for one person alone, regardless of how useful he tries to be.“

—  Yamamoto Tsunetomo, livro Hagakure, Hagakure (c. 1716), Context: Military affairs are not matters for one person alone, regardless of how useful he tries to be. Money is something that one can borrow from people, but a good man cannot suddenly be come by. One should sustain a man kindly and well from the first. And in having retainers it will not do to nourish oneself alone. If you divide what you have and feed your lower ranks, you will be able to hold good men.
