Zitate Yoshida Kenkō

„Fame, moreover inspires backbiting. It does no good whatsoever to have one's name survive. A craving after fame is next foolish.“

Essays in Idleness (1967 Columbia University Press, Trns: Donald Keene)
Kontext: One would like to leave behind a glorious reputation for surpassing wisdom and character, but careful reflection will show that what we mean by love of a glorious reputation is delight in the approbation of others. Neither those who praise nor those who abuse last for long, and the people who have heard their reports are like likely to depart the world as quickly. Before whom then should we feel ashamed? By whom should we wish to be appreciated? Fame, moreover inspires backbiting. It does no good whatsoever to have one's name survive. A craving after fame is next foolish.

„The most precious thing in life is its uncertainty.“

—  Yoshida Kenkō

Essays in Idleness (1967 Columbia University Press, Trns: Donald Keene)
Kontext: If man were never to fade away like the dews of Adashino never to vanish like the smoke over Toribeyama, but lingered on forever in the world, how things would lose their power to move us! The most precious thing in life is its uncertainty. Consider living creatures- none lives so long a man. The May fly waits not for the evening, the summer cicada knows neither spring nor autumn. What a wonderfully unhurried feeling it is to live even even a single year in perfect serenity.
