The sources of quotations are the Hagakure’s treatise ‘Hidden by the Leaves’, the most famous treatise on the Japanese way of a samurai. The Book of Five Rings is a treatise on the art of strategy, and this book has become very popular in the business community of modern Japan, China and Korea as it helps develop strategic thinking.
Among the samurai are Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate who ruled Japan for 300 years; Takeda Shingen, one of the greatest strategists of Japan who did not lose a single battle, and other great samurai.
The image of a samurai, the warrior who puts honour and duty before life, inspired George Lucas to create the Jedi Knights and Star Wars. I hope these quotes will inspire you too.
I did my best to create this application and hoped you would get a lot of pleasant emotions. I wish you good luck, and may the force be with you!
In Japanese history, samurais had been ruled the country for a long time.
Originally they were just the warriors who fought with a sword and a spear.
However they began to hold political power using thier force of arms.
Since then not only samurais with muscular strength but also samurais with the abilities of strategy and policy making were begun to play active role.
The Sengoku period is when many samurais were flourished.
A regional lord called "Daimyo" scattered throughout Japan and each of them conflicted against others...it was a war-torn world.
