The little things about Japan that Americans live and hate are plentiful which makes it an okay read but the story is pretty bad in many ways.

Kakuzō Okakura
“Those who cannot feel the littleness of great things in themselves are apt to overlook the greatness of little things in others.”
Kakuzō Okakura

Ishmael Beah
“We must strive to be like the moon.' An old man in Kabati repeated this sentence often... the adage served to remind people to always be on their best behavior and to be good to others. [S]he said that people complain when there is too much sun and it gets unbearably hot, and also when it rains too much or when it is cold. But, no one grumbles when the moon shines. Everyone becomes happy and appreciates the moon in their own special way. Children watch their shadows and play in its light, people gather at the square to tell stories and dance through the night. A lot of happy things happen when the moon shines. These are some of the reasons why we should want to be like the moon.”

Yann Martel
“Life is so beautiful that death has fallen in love with it, a jealous, possessive love that grabs at what it can. But life leaps over oblivion lightly, losing only a thing or two of no importance, and gloom is but the passing shadow of a cloud...”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi

Shel Silverstein
“Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
Shel Silverstein

Nikolai Grozni
“Home is simply a place where your friends wait for you to come back.”
Nikolai Grozni, Turtle Feet
