THE SECOND-BEST SWORDSMAN

From Mark Twain: “The best swordsman in the world doesn’t need to fear the second-best swordsman; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn’t do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn’t prepared for him.” – James Erwin, Editor, Des Moines, IA, USA
