Annotations and Commentary:
I have no discipline. I make myself have discipline.
Truly having no discipline means that you would be
incapable of making yourself do anything. What kind of
warrior is it that has no discipline? This statement has no
I have no knowledge. I make myself know more.
Obviously you have knowledge. You have no wisdom.
Knowledge is valuable and can be traded for food and
clothing. Wisdom is priceless, yet can't be given
I have no skills. I make my skills grow.
In this rapidly changing world, all of our skills
become obsolete almost daily. We build on what we know,
learning or dying as we each see fit.
I have no understanding. I make myself comprehend.
. . .and give yourself a stroke trying? Nah, I'd
rather rely on those who have gone before. that's not lazy,
that's smart. Your philosophy would have us all starting by

I have no strength. I make myself strong.
We all have strength. We all have weakness. Our
interactions with others make us strong, wallowing in our

always. Again, study the works of those who have gone
before, and emulate the masters.

This is so blatantly obvious it need not be said.
I have no past. I live each day like it is a new start.
A good statement generally, but if you never learn from your mistakes, how do you grow?
And so forth . . .
