Membership

There may be some difference between characteristics which make a man favored as a member of a friendly circle and characteristics which make a man demanded as a member of a practical organization.

Didn't snow

Yesterday's weather forecast proved wrong. It didn't snow at all today.

It's rain probably after an interval of more than a week. It is forecast to be snow tomorrow.

Caught my eyes

Sometimes my eyes catch something which I have passed again and again and even the existence of which I have never recognized for decades.

A fundamental assumption left out of consideration

Ayn Rand's philosophical system has on its foundation a very important assumption: "If you really want to live your own life". The fundamental assumption of her philosophy seems to me to be too little thought of by those who willingly make use of her philosophy to design a social system which looks ideal for themselves.

Reason founded on love

I guess the volume of Ayn Rand's emotion was so huge that few people can realize the meaning of such words as "love", "want", etc., in the same way as Rand herself realized. And probably Rand's thoughts about reason cannot be understood correctly without correct understanding of Rand's concept of love.

Function and substance

It depends on person how disagreeable it seems to give the same name to a function and the substance which carries it.

2016年1月24日日曜日

Contrast

It is said the opposite poles attract each other. Ayn Rand seems to me to have become an ardent advocate of reason due to, or driven by, her passionate love for her own life and the world she lived in. Contrary to Rand, I was originally a heartless boy and I got to think a great deal of emotion by reasoning.

Unsatisfactory

The videos which I took after a long interval at last Tuesday's event had a lot of unsatisfactory points.

Not yet thawed

The snow which lay on the ground last Monday has not yet thawed completely.

Allow myself to say

I wrote most of the manuscript of the handout for yesterday's lecture about morality of capitalism by ARI Executive Director at Rikkyo University. Although that was very difficult job, I could allow myself to say I did well.

Ayn Rand seminar in Japanese university

Today was probably the first day an Ayn Rand seminar was held as an official event of Japanese university.

Successful

Today's lecture event which I joined  as a staff was very successful.

It was the first snowfall of this winter.

Small fruits

I like seeing small fruits of vivid colors lit by the winter sunlight.


Listening

My comprehension of spoken English has considerably improved these a few months driven by necessity.

Orange

It was a cold and fine day. Here and there are plants of brilliant colors even in winter.

How steady

Recalling how often personal computers used to freeze and how short a life they used to have about 20 yeas ago, the steadiness of recent personal computers is marvelous.

Advice by successful people

Sometimes I wonder whether the most promoted employee in a company which went bankrupt had been excellent or not. We can rarely forecast whether a company is going bankrupt within a decade or not.

Labor and valuation

The amount of labor which an work requires and the height of valuation which other people give to the outcome of the work are sometimes disgustingly out of proportion.

2016年1月10日日曜日

Unexpressed conceptions

There are so many things which I want to write someday about the human body and society.

Directly‐opposed

It is puzzling that those who seems to me far more intelligent than me argue the directly‐opposed policies to make this country rich.

Contrary to intuition

It may be as contrary to intuition as the heliocentric system that a free market economy benefits the less competent.

Rays of sunshine

Rays of sunshine through breaks in the clouds was beautiful this afternoon.

Advice avoidance

I keep in mind other people's words and deeds which make me feel like avoiding advising them on anything and try to avoide such words and deeds.

2016年1月5日火曜日

Thoughtless words

It is not rare for me to regret my thoughtless words of criticizing other people's job.

Olive oil

Olive oil has begun to solidify, which makes me feel the coming of the real winter.

Went far to Hadano

I fell asleep in the Odakyu train on my way home from Tokyo, passed my station Sohbudai-mae, and woke up passing Tokaidaigaku-mae, about 30 km to the west of my station. That was the first time I overslept in a train that far.

2016年1月2日土曜日

Overslept

I took a nap intending for an hour and found I had slept for 5 hours.

My hopes

This year I want to make two of my businesses turn into the black, and also want to keep writing this brief diary  without fail, and keep making progress on my physical abilities.
