Takeda Shingen

I’ve been reading up on medieval Japanese history and I ran across this quote by Takeda Shingen who was a powerful warlord in the 16th century. I found it to be both beautiful and inspiring. This quote became closely associated with Shingen and the Takeda clan as a whole.

Fast like the wind,

Silent like a forest,

Intrusive like the fire,

Immobile like a mountain.
