Never give a sword to a man who can’t dance.

Is this saying Confucian, ancient Irish or maybe African? Google doesn’t know for sure but many have offered their own interpretation. Sampling: “If someone is uncoordinated and can’t dance, they have no business handling a weapon.” … “I’m sure you know what an angry person can do with a sword!” … “A person who can dance is probably happy and wouldn’t want to use a sword anyway.” … And this: “Anyone who cannot dance has no real appreciation for the things that the sword could destroy and would use the sword without remorse.”
