Citáty Takashi Matsuoka


„Tím, že nebesa svěřila mužům vládu nad tímto světem, projevili bohové poněkud zlomyslný smysl pro humor.“

„And when the moment came, even then Genji would be fortunate. He would die without fear, drenched in his own heart's blood, in the embrace of a beautiful woman, and she would weep for him.

What samurai could hope for more?“


„The sages say happiness and sorrow are one. Is this because in finding the first, we also find the second?“ Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„I enter a time of much peril, and am more likely to fail and die than succeed and live.”
“Those who succeed and those who fail are both destined to die.“
Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„Never like anybody you can’t trust, Cruz said. You might think you’re a smart boy, you can like somebody and still keep your eyes open. But there’s something about liking that dismays your attention, I don’t know what it is. You allow yourself to like somebody you don’t trust, and one night soon enough, you’ll wake up to find an ax cleaved in the back of your skull, and you’ll have your own foolish liking to thank for it.“ Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„When we let ourselves see only what we expect to see,” Genji said, “we view the contents of our own minds and miss what is truly before us.“ Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„You saved my life. You must let me thank you with a gift.”
“I could just as well say you saved mine. Neither of us would have survived without the other.”
“Then you owe me a gift as well. I will give you Apple Valley. What will you give me?“
Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„She looked down and saw Genji on his warhorse, and it was he who was out of place, not herself. The incongruity of a samurai in her orchard made her laugh.
Her own laughter brought her back.
Coming back, she began to weep.
“My home was in Apple Valley,” Emily said. “Another Apple Valley.”
After a time, Genji said, “This place was yours before you ever saw it.“
Kastel Awan Burung Gereja


„Lack of fear is not the mark of courage. It is the mark of idiocy. Courage is knowing fear and overcoming it.“ Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„Some say there is no difference among the barbarians, that they are all the same offal-eating abominations. This is false. The Portuguese will trade guns for women. The Dutch demand gold. The English want treaties.
From this, you should know that the Portuguese and the Dutch are easily understood, and the English are the most dangerous. Therefore, study the English carefully and ignore the others.

SUZUME–NO–KUMO
(1641)“
Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„What will happen will happen, whether you know of it or not. Believe me, it is not always better to know."
“Knowing must be better,” Shigeru said. “Then no one can take you by surprise.”
“Someone will always take you by surprise, because no matter how much you know, you can never know everything.“
Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„It is important to know when to delegate authority.“


„Crisis changes people,” Genji said, filling Heiko’s cup in turn. “If they are fortunate, crisis shows them what truly matters.“ Kastel Awan Burung Gereja

„Knowledge may hinder. Ignorance may liberate. Knowing when to know and when not to know, this is as important as a fluent blade.

SUZUME–NO–KUMO
(1434)“

„Are winters here always so mild?”
“It is rarely colder,” Genji said, “so we have little need for Eskimo skills.”
“My lord, please.”
“Perhaps our population would be greater if it snowed.”
Emily looked away, her face hot with embarrassment. She was sure she was as red as an apple ready for plucking.
Genji laughed. “I’m sorry, Emily. I couldn’t resist.”
“You promised you would never mention it.”
“I promised I would never mention it to others. I said nothing about reminiscing with you.“

“Lord Genji, that is very ungentlemanly of you.”
“Ungentlemanly?”
“‘Un’ is a prefix meaning ‘not.’ A gentleman is a person of good character and high principle. ‘Ly’ is a suffix meaning ‘having the character of.’ ” She turned as stern a gaze on him as she could manage. “Your present behavior does not demonstrate good character and high principle.”
“An unforgivable lapse. Please accept my most profound apologies.”
“I would, were you not smiling in such obvious amusement.”
“You are smiling, too.”
“It is a grimace, not a smile.”
“Grimace?”
She refused to explain.“
