“Perception is strong and sight weak. In strategy it is important to see distant things as if they were close and to take a distanced view of close things.”
Miyamoto Musashi (1584 to 1645)
Miyamoto Musashi was a famous Japanese soldier-artist of the early Edo (Tokugawa) period (1603 to 1867). He was also known for being a philosopher, writer, and Ronin.
His original name was Miyamoto Masana, but he was also known as Shinmen Takezō, Miyamoto Bennosuke or, by his Buddhist name, Niten Dōraku.
