Yoshida Shoin

As things stand now the feudal lords are content to look on while the shogunate carries on in a highhanded manner. Neither the lords nor the shogun can be depended upon, and so our only hope lies in grass-roots heroes.More Yoshida Shoin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To consider oneself different from ordinary men is wrong, but it is right to hope that one will not remain like ordinary men.More Yoshida Shoin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It seems hopeless, hopeless. Those who eat meat [at public expense] are a mean, selfish lot, and so the country is doomed. Our only hope lies in the grass-roots folk who eat our traditional food.More Yoshida Shoin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

When I consider the state of things in our fief, I find that those who hold positions and receive official stipends are incapable of the utmost in loyalty and patriotic service. Loyalty of the usual sort-perhaps, but if it is true loyalty and service you seek, then you must abandon this fief and plan a grass-roots uprising.More Yoshida Shoin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
