Fair interpretation

I want to keep cautioning myself to interpret other people's speeches and activates, which can be interpreted as either well-intentioned or ill-intentioned, neither only as ill-intentioned nor as well-intentioned.

Ears of Susuki

Ears of Susuki grass, or miscanthus sinensis, in the sunlight of autumn, shine if they were emitting light themselves.

Beautiful moon

Tonight's moon is so beautiful that people can't help but stop walking and look up.

Autumn smells

Flowers of fragrant olive send forth sweet fragrance. Persimmons which dropped from trees and have got rotten give off sour smell. Autumn smells are flowing along the country roads around my place.

Contradiction of desires

Our desire of any kind is simultaneously an imitation of that of other people and the original of our own. Whether we ignore the imitational aspect or the original aspect of our desires, we lose sight of the nature of our desires.

Unperceivable strong points of other people

It may be one of the most difficult questions to be aware that we are avoiding asking ourselves, "What kind of strong points of other people we hate to praise?"

Compulsive diggers

When people talk about a subject, some seem to stop digging into the subject they are talking about, while others seem to keep digging into the subject they are talking about. I like the latter.

Business as personal politics

It could be also a form of political activity to avoid what is called politics and focus on what is called business.

Fall asleep easily

Recently I fall asleep easily at night. It gets difficult for me to sit up after midnight.

Respect-for-the-Aged Day

If my hearing ability declines as I get old, I want to keep myself able to be aware that I annoy those around me if I watch television at the volume which sounds appropriate to my weakened ears.

Compulsive summarizer

I am always absorbed to the extent of being strange in summarizing something, especially the plot of my favorite books and films.

Freedom from thoughts

For most of people the stress brought by the situation in which they have to think something is too heavy to bear. Words which give people the conviction that all they have to do is just believe and they don't have to think any more are ardently accepted.

Polished bus body

The body of Kanagawa Chuo Kotsu buses which arrive at and depart from Sōbudai-mae Station, the nearest station from my place, seem to be as polished as buses on a regular route which arrive at and depart from any station in Japan.

Morning glory still in bloom

Although as to air temperature the real autumn has come, a few flowers of morning glory were still in bloom in my neighborhood the day before yesterday.

Government-supportive mob

Although I am sure that an anti-government demonstration on the street will help the government all the more by incurring hatred of the general public if it turns into a mob in contemporary Japan, I am not sure if it is possible for the government to turn a peaceful demonstration into a mob intentionally and secretly in contemporary Japan.

Atrophy

Because relaxing a muscle is not just ceasing exerting strength but a positive action, if a muscle is not relaxed for a long time, the portion of the brain which is in charge of relaxing the muscle atrophies.

Relaxation is not the same as absence of intentional exertion of strength

To relax a muscle is not the same as not to exert strength. If  a muscle is constantly strained  irrespective of one's intention, the muscle is not relaxed just by stopping exerting strength intentionally.

Careful and repetitive consideration

Like it cannot be fully grasped without careful and repetitive reading how great a great novel is, it might be impossible without careful and repetitive consideration to fully grasp how great a great man or woman is.

Hydrangea still in bloom

A flowerhead of hydrangea, which is normally in full bloom in June and wilts in July, is in bloom alone in my neighborhood.

National census

The national census form reached me today. From this time online responses are accepted. I have finished filling in the form online, which was much easier than filling in the paper form.

Typhoon passed

Affected by a typhoon which traveled through the center of Honshu Island today, there was intermittent downpour around my neighborhood until about 2 p.m.

Government by the people

People expect the government to execute "the justice", which is generally and practically only a kind of justice from the government's point of view. What the government can execute is only an assembly of coordinated justices, which is mostly beyond comprehension of people. I guess that is why it seems for people impossible to establish and maintain the government by the people.

Perception of one's body

It is difficult to have common viewpoints to perceive one's own body with other people.

Given as helpful advice as ever

Advice given by slow learners is generally far more helpful than that given by quick learners. I reaffirmed the proposition at my practice of martial arts today.

Introduction exposes

Because the novels by Ayn Rand depict clearly the real nature and structure of greatness of human life, introducers of her novels inevitably expose by their introduction how great or petty a life they have lived.

Not an assembly

A state is not an assembly which independent and equal individuals established by gathering. Likewise the international society is not an assembly which independent and equal states established by gathering.

Made even more pessimistic

Optimists who just can't grasp negative factors just make pessimists even more pessimistic.

Questions pleasant to answer

I guess almost no question we like to ask of a person is a question the person likes to answer.

False eyelashes

It seems for me to be a strange custom that so many young Japanese women wear false eyelashes in public since about ten years ago.
