Ah, but the One, one of them is a Warrior

"In War of every One-Hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there,
eighty are nothing but targets, nine are real fighters...we are lucky to have them...they make the battle.
Ah, but the One, one of them is a Warrior...and He will bring the others back."

Heraclitus (circa 500 BC)
