“It is said that one should keep one's allies within view, and one's enemies within reach. A valid statement. One must be able to read an ally's strengths, so as to determine how to best use them. One must similarly be able to read his enemy's weaknesses, so as to determine how to best defeat him.

But what of friends?

There is no accepted answer, perhaps true friendship is so exceedingly rare. But I had formulated my own.

A friend need not be kept within sight or within reach. A friend must be allowed the freedom to find and follow his own path. If one is fortunate, those paths will for a time join. But if paths separate, it is comforting to know that a friend still graces the universe with his skills, and his viewpoint, and his present. For if one is remembered by a friend, one is never truly gone.”

― Timothy Zahn, Thrawn

“Many of those skilled in technological warfare believe that physical training and discipline are unnecessary. With turbolasers, hyperdrives, armor plating and the mental resources to direct them, muscular strength and agility are thought to be merely conceits. They are wrong. The mind and body are linked together in a meshwork of oxygen, nutrients, hormones and neuron health. Physical exercise drives that meshwork, stimulating the brain and freeing one's intellect.
Simulated combat has the additional virtue of training the eye to spot small errors and exploit them, a change in focus can also allow the subconcious mind to focus on unresolved questions. Simulated combat often ends with the warrior discovering one or more of those questions have been unexpectedly solved. And occasionaly such exercise can serve other purposes."
― Timothy Zahn, Thrawn
