Quote by Sun Tzu
If our soldiers are not overburdened with money, it is not because they have a distaste for riches if their lives are not unduly long, it is not because they are disinclined to longevity.
This quote suggests that lack of wealth and shorter life expectancy among soldiers should not be misinterpreted as a lack of desire for riches or longevity. It implies that soldiers are not focused on accumulating wealth, but rather on fulfilling their duty and serving their country, even if it means accepting hardships or potential risks to their lives. The quote challenges the assumption that material possessions and longevity are the primary goals for everyone, highlighting the unique sacrifices and priorities of those in military service.
