Tranquilize your mind every morning, and imagine the moment when you may be torn and mangled by arrows, guns, lances, and swords, swept away by great waves, thrown into fire, struck down by thunderbolts, shaken by earthquakes, falling from a precipice, dying of a disease, or dead from an unexpected accident; die every morning in your mind, and then you will not fear death.


From the he Book of the Samurai, Analects of Nabeshima or Hagakure Analects.
