There is nothing Outside of of yourself…

The Book of Five Rings (五輪書, Go Rin No Sho) is a text on kenjutsu and the martial arts in general, written by the swordsman Miyamoto Musashi (宮本 武蔵) circa 1645 // Thanks Eva for the tip!:

There is nothing
Outside of yourself
That can ever enable you
To get better, stronger, richer,
Quicker, or smarter.
Everything is withing.
Seek nothing
Outside of yourself.
– Miyamoto Musashi
