Japanese quote of the day

“Male members of the warrior class, which made up about 10% of the population, were fierce fighters who tended to be aggressive and arrogant. The common people were characteristically polite, kind, generous, hospitable, trust-worthy and diligent” Boye Lafayette De Mente in “Kata” (2003) on something that is still true now- just put the words “politicians” or “self made businessmen” in the place of the “warrior class”
