To show one's sadness is to impose a burden on others
A very good woman, without anything expansive or abusive in her feelings is the feminine ideal of Japan.
Her virtue? Patience.
Her beauty lies in never complaining, showing anger or the slightest gesture of annoyance. Even when she has been through great misfortune, she smiles. Her upbringing has taught her that displaying misfortune doesn't send back anything positive and that to carry it with you on your face is to place a burden on the shoulders of others.
We do not love people so much for the good they have done us, as for the good we do them.
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.
