A properly balanced sword is the most versatile weapon for
close quarters ever devised. Pistols and guns are all offense, no
defense; close on him fast and a man with a gun can't shoot, he has to
stop you before you reach him. Close on a man carrying a blade and
you'll be spitted like a roast pigeon — unless you have a blade and
can use it better than he can. A sword never jams, never has to be
reloaded, is always ready. Its worst shortcoming is that it takes great
skill and patient, loving practice to gain that skill; it can't be
taught to raw recruits in weeks, nor even months.
--Robert A. Heinlein

Happy Birthday RAH, you are sorely missed.

Thanks PF. Heinlein is good for quotes, eh? I thought I recognized that first one. Wasn't surprised when I recognized the second one.

It's not really a quote, but good nonetheless.
