Thought for the Day

. . . I always tell people . . . that it is very good if you
do not fall. But people are apt to trip. If you get up
back on the right track, then the experience will enrich
your life. If you don't get up, you reach the end, and 
you lose. But getting up is great.
~ Toshiro Ogura*

* Quoted from interview with Hiroshima survivor Toshiro Ogura in Hiroshima in the Morning by Rahna Reiko Rizzuto (Feminist Press of City University of New York, 2010). 

A trailer for the award-winning book, which I read recently, is here.

“My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.”
