When you are embarked upon a righteous path that will lead to conflict, you should not pretend you want peace; right and justice mean something to you, as you are guided by a moral compass that calls you to action.

It is better to be prepared for battle and not have to fight than to head toward battle hoping for peace while unwilling to surrender. Tell yourself the truth: I am going to battle. I will battle. Good will stand against evil. I want the battle.
