Forewarned is forearmed.(警戒は警備なり)

Prevention is better than cure.(予防は治療にまさる)


What one likes, one will do well; You become good at what you like doing



Spare the rod and spoil the child.

If you love your child, send him out into the world.  - 斎藤和英大辞典

A pampered child learns little; the best education is to be forced out into the world.





We heard Tatsui-san practice a speech he is going to give.

Aloha, I am writing to hopefully find a pen pal in Japan that can read and write English well enough to communicate with me through email.  I am a blind 50-year old Japanese-American guy living in Hawaii, and am a volunteer Braille, cooking and ukulele teacher at a local vocational rehabilitation center for the blind.  I am hoping to learn Japanese and to one day go on a sake and onsen tour in Japan.  If anyone is interested in corresponding , could you please forward my name and email address to them? Warm Mahalo.
