An afterthought- Saxon Stated:
"Without a code, one is almost certain to fall into both Hedonism and Pragmatism."
If one were defining the desired attributes of a warrior- I would think that being pragmatic would be on the list.
To be clear pragmatism is defined as :"a practical approach to problems and affairs"
Pragmatists emphasize the practical function of knowledge as an instrument for adapting to reality and controlling it
When a person reaches beyond the limits of their ability; they shall they make progress. There is no other way.
