This book is well worth a read with compilation of the philosphies of Yamamoto Tsunetomo. Yamamoto Tsunetomo was a samurai in the early 1700s. who retired to a monastery after his master's death.
I downloaded Miyamoto Musashi's "The Book of Five Rings" at Feedbooks but haven't read it yet. I'll look up the two you mention, they sound interesting.
