A Quote by Miyamoto Musashi on bliss, buddhism, compassion, doctors, innocence, intelligence, laws, learning, life, motherhood, poets, salvation, skill, and teaching

As the innocent infant relies upon the mother for sustenance, so the innocent wanderer, following his native compassion and bliss, relies upon the natural intelligence of life to sustain him. There are various Ways. There is the Way of salvation by the law of Buddha, the Way of Confucius governing the Way of learning, the Way of healing as a doctor, as a poet teaching the Way of Waka, tea, archery, and many arts and skills. Each man practices as he feels inclined.
