Tao Te Ching Chapter 58-10 Don't tear it!
Therefore, the sage is just, but doesn't tear any. (Ch.58)
Please remember you are always "just".
Don't "tear" any. You are just if you don't judge.
But, at the same time, you are just even if you judge.
In other words, no matter what you judge, you are not judging anything in fact.
You are doing nothing no matter what you are doing in fact.
Don't "tear" any.
Don't split time and create past, present, and future.
Time will confuse you.
Don't split space and create you and non-you.
The presence of Self will confuse you.
Don't divide something in harmony.

Tao answers your question!
☞Who is a samurai? The answer depends on what period of the Japanese history you are talking about. Read «Taiheiki» if you are interested in the old schoolers of samurai. Kusunoki, Masashige was a loyal tactician and strategist for Emperor Go-Daigo. ☞Ironical as it sounds, the title «Taiheiki» signifies a chronicle of the great peaceful period. The real peace might rather be represented by this popular song. One of the greatest singers in post-war Japan, Hibari Misora, sings «Furisode Taiheiki», which can be translated as "Taiheiki of a young girl in kimono". The title in the photo reads «Kamome shiranami», or the white waves of seagulls, though.
