    Such a 4 letters-charactor use seems to be a Japanese style, not so common in chana, I think.
    But it is originally chanisese, one phrase apears in " Sun's art of War" .

    It is very famous in Japan for the motto written in the flag of his team in war, that is used by Singen TAKEDA, the famous samurai in SENGOKU piriod in Japan.

    風:move speedy like wind, when it moves
    林:keep quiete like woods(forest)
    火:attack hard like a fire
    山:keep no move like a mountain
