Every time I reread or rewatch

Almost every time I newly notice the meaning of speeches or descriptions in a novel or film which I read or watch again,  I am afraid that I may be abnormally slow in grasping the meaning of speeches or descriptions in a novel or film.

Sense of responsibility

I can't look down on people who are conscious of what kind of and how much of responsibility they themselves can bear and do their best to fully bear the responsibility which they have once decided to bear, whatever kind of and however limited responsibility that is.

Moved to tears

A movie the first half of which bored me most in the past few years moved me most in the past few years at its ending.

Moderate

In a sense being good at suppressing one's own anger is being insensitive to deviation from rules. By being more moderate in temper, one can be more irresponsible.

Job of sugar-coating

I undertook again a job of writing a publicity article based on customer interview at which it was very difficult to sugar-coat remarks which could not be brought into the open.

My old cellular phone already damaged

The cellular phone which I had lost last Sunday and somebody had found and taken to a police station came to hand today. Unfortunately it was damaged and didn't start up. I gave up the old one which I had used for three years and six months, and decide to use the new one which also came to hand from the mobile phone operator today.

My lost cellphone found

The day before yesterday on my way home from Nozawa-onsen I lost my cellphone. Yesterday I called and asked the transport facilities I had used, a cafe I had dropped into, and the local police station whether they kept my cellphone, and all their answers were "No". I took steps for compensation for loss, and had the mobile phone operator send new one tomorrow. This afternoon I had a telephone call from the mobile phone operator, and was told that an old man had found my cellphone and brought it to the local police station. I called the local police station and asked them to send it to my home.

Unspoken feelings

I want to keep sensitive to unspoken feelings by other people to whom I am speaking that something is wrong about what I am saying.

Welcome pickles

On my return trip from Nozawa-onsen, I got an sightseeing train of Iiyama Line. To my surprise, they served a pack of welcome Nozawana (leaf vegetable which Nozawa-onsen is noted for) to passengers. This was the first time that I was served welcome pickles.

Still keep hopeful

Although it is very difficult to keep hopeful about development of my physical ability, it requires courage to abandon a hope.

TV crew

This evening a crew of NHK TV came to the inn at which I am staying and interviewed with the owner and a group of guest about its home-brewed sake.

My regular inn

It seemed like to be after less than a year I visited an inn which I had visited every year for over ten years and visited this year too after a year.

Insight

Depth of peace of mind one can give to other people considerably depends on the depth of his or her insight into the world.

2015年8月18日火曜日

Reading again and again

Great novels give me new discoveries and insights every time I read them again.

Lack of pride

Lack of a pride often makes us laugh through ignorance at words and deeds by other people who have the pride.

More completed "We the Living"

I guess ardent readers of Ayn Rand's masterpieces Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead can enjoy her maiden work We the Living and imagine in their mind more completed We the Living of their own. I use "more completed" in two meanings. One is in the meaning of literary techniques. The other is that we can imagine, and can't help imagining, various freer worlds where those great characters like Kira, Leo, and Andrei can bring their ability into full play.

Unconscious influence

Few people seems to be conscious of how fundamentally and decisively their thoughts are influenced by their physical condition.

2015年8月14日金曜日

Reading again “We the living"

I am reading again Ayn Rand's novel "We the living" Japanese version, this time making a note of the characters. Once the names, relations, and backgrounds of the characters became clear, I found this novel was intellectually exciting much more than I had thought when I read it first.

Various belief

The contents of what people believe about the world are so various that I can say nothing face to face with other people about what I believe about the world.

The idea of contradictions still valid

I think it is regrettable that the Marxists' view of the world in which contradictions are regareded as the prime mover of any motion, change, growth, extinction, and  so on of every existence has become ignored just because Marxism as political thought has been proved invalid

Jokeless

While some make people laugh almost every minute with their funny jokes, others like me make people laugh less than once a year with their boring jokes

Loyalty

Few people would support such a man or woman as their leader as habitually distorts facts, and also few people would support such a man or woman as their leader as has no advantage except being faithful to facts.

Extortion

It's not happy to see clerks or owners of small businesses being demanded by customers to provide additional services with no offer of additional payment.

OS reinstallation succeeded

Reinstallation of Windows 7 to my three-year-old desk top PC, which had become unable to start up normally yesterday, succeeded. I have to reinstall various application software to it.

Desktop PC out of order

The desktop PC I had used since April of 2012 became unable to start up normally. I try reinstalling Windows OS tomorrow. If it doesn't work, I have to buy new one.

Facts and interpretations

I am translating articles in Wikipedia in English in reference to Ayn Rand into Japanese. Although I have often heard intelligent Japanese people say that unlike Japanese people European and American people are strictly taught to distinguish interpretation from fact when they are high‐school students, in most of the articles in Wikipedia in English in reference to Ayn Rand, interpretations are jumbled up with facts.

Lucky and sorry

While I think it is fortunate for me that I can practice martial arts periodically with friends who have much more desire for improvement than me, I am sorry for them that they have to practice with me who have less desire for improvement than them.

Be less dramatic

It is far more difficult for me to deepen friendship with the kind of people who like to explain human relations using dramatic and poetic words than with the kind of people who like to explain human relations using prosaic and analytic words.

Practical views of the world

Probably one can be a much better sundial designer by believing the geocentric theory than by believing the heliocentric theory. Similarly, one can get much more skilled at most of the professions which ordinary people can engage in by believing a view of the world which is incorrect in broad perspective than by believing a view of the world which is correct in broad perspective. Conversely, people often reinforce their own incorrect view of the world  by getting skilled in a profession.

Unenjoyable parties

Until about ten years ago I thought it was possible a party which was unenjoyable for me when for the first time I was present could be enjoyable when I was present for the second or third time. I was wrong. No party that was unenjoyable for me when for the first time I was present has become enjoyable how many times I am present.

Attracting quality

What quality of other people I am attracted by depends to some extent on what physical condition I am in at that moment.
