-31 (from the 2nd chapter)
human life is truly a short affair.
It is better to live doing te things that you like.
It is foolish to live within this dream of a world seeing unpleasantness and doing only things that you do not like. but it is important never to tell this to young people, as it is something that would be harmful if incorrectly understood.
personally I like to[xxx].And I intend to appropriately confine myself more and more to my living quarters and pass my life away [xxx].
from Hagakure, by Yamamoto Tsunetomo.
