David Kudler
“Be swift as the wind,
silent as the forest,
fierce as fire,
steady as a mountain.”
David Kudler, Risuko: A Kunoichi Tale

“The entrenched interests of the regional nobility prevented the proper functioning of a government built upon ethical practice. While high-minded scholars often called for reforms, their memoranda carried little weight with an idle aristocracy.”
Joan Stanley-Baker, Japanese Art
