Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba
"If your heart is large enough to envelope your adversaries you can see right through them and avoid their attacks. And once you envelop them you will be able to guide them along the path indicated to you by heaven and earth."
"When an opponent comes forward, move in and greet him; if he wants to pull back, send him on his way."
"Opponents confront us continually, but actually there is no opponent there. Enter deeply into an attack and neutralize it as you draw that misdirected force into your own sphere."
"The life force is all-pervasive and its strength boundless. The Art of Peace allows us to perceive and tap into that tremendous reserve of universal energy."
"The Art of Peace is the principle of nonresistance. Because it is nonresistant, it is victorious from the beginning. Those with evil intentions or contentious thoughts are instantly vanquished. The Art of Peace is invincible because it contends with nothing. "
