Uesugi Kenshin was a daimyō who was born as Nagao Kagetora, and after adoption into the Uesugi clan, ruled Echigo Province in the Sengoku period of Japan. He was one of the most powerful daimyōs of the Sengoku period. While chiefly remembered for his prowess on the battlefield, Kenshin is also regarded as an extremely skillful administrator who fostered the growth of local industries and trade; his rule saw a marked rise in the standard of living of Echigo.
Fate is in heaven, armor is on the chest, accomplishment is in the feet; always fight with your opponent in the palm of your hand, and you won’t get wounded. If you fight willing to die, you’ll survive; if you fight trying to survive, you’ll die. If you think you’ll never go home again, you will; if you hope to make it back, you won’t. While it is not incorrect to consider the world uncertain, as a warrior one should not think of it as uncertain but as totally certain.
