A meditation for today. I ran across this quote in some reading and it made me ponder. Applicable to us monks as well as 17th century Japanese warriors I think.
You should not have a favorite weapon. To become overfamiliar with one weapon is as much a fault as not knowing it sufficiently well...It is bad for commanders...to have likes and dislikes.--Miyamoto Musashi, 17th century Japanese warrior in the Book of Five Rings
You should not have a favorite (language|tool|paradigm)...Discuss amongst yourselves...
