Daodejing 31

Weapons are instruments of death.

Therefore, living things hate them.

Followers of the way avoid
weapons except in direst
circumstance, preferring calm.

Avoid victory by force—

violence leads
only to violence.

Remember: a killer
is never trusted long.

Celebrate a victory
like a funeral.
