As such, I wish to share two sources which I feel sheds light on the price of freedom.

I have always admired Tokugawa Ieyasu. He established the Tokugawa Shogunate which went on to rule Japan in the name of the emperor for 250 years. But during his lifetime, this outcome was far from certain. There were many rivals who surpassed him in skill and might. But by being in harmony with the time and circumstances, Tokugawa survived all his rivals to unite Japan. What follows is a quote that shows how he coped with the difficulties he faced in life.
