Samurai warriors described themselves as followers of "The Way of the Warrior" or Bushido. From the earliest times, the Samurai felt that the path of the warrior was one of honor, emphasizing duty to one's master, and loyalty unto death. "Those who are reluctant to give up their lives and embrace death are not true warriors. When you leave the house determined not to see it again you will come home safely; when you have any thought of returning you will not return".
