    The Pearl Harbor attack of 1941 is a prime example of this.
    • The Japanese never messed about with miniature submarines again
    The Americans:
    • They pondered why their AAA was not more effective
    • They pondered why they failed to benefit from having radar
    • They pondered why their ships got torpedoed in a Harbor where it was impossible
    • They pondered why all their pursuit aircraft (fighters) were destroyed on the ground
    • They pondered how it was possible to sink a battleship with a single bomb from a single-engine plane
    Much was learned that day.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    That which does not kill us...
    The wound that does not kill me...
    ...makes me/us stronger.

    Did Nietzche steal that from a Turk or a Muslim or are all the people attributing: “The wound that does not kill...”, to an old Arab Proverb, unknowingly ripping off Nietzche?

    Plus, It is untrue (unless there is time to recover).

    For Individuals: The wound that does not kill you makes you an easier target for the next foe you face.

    For Armies, Nations, Groups: there might be more truth in it.

    But performing can imply acting, which would be masking your true self

    But based on the context of the quote they are not using the word "perform" in such a manner. It would be better to look at it as if it was a sport, where practice = preparation and perform = actions during the actual game/contest.
