James Clavell

“Oh, yes. Every year in this Land of the Gods we have earth tremors. And fires and flood and Great Waves, and the monster storms - the tai-funs. Nature is very strong with us.' Tears gathered at the corners of her eyes. 'Perhaps that is why we love life so much, Anjin-San. You see, we have to. Death is a part of our air and sea and earth. You should know, Anjin-San, in this Land of Tears, death is our heritage.”


James Clavell, Shōgun
