Is Divorce Wrong? (1889)
Kontext: Marriages are made by men and women; not by society; not by the state; not by the church; not by supernatural beings. By this time we should know that nothing is moral that does not tend to the well-being of sentient beings; that nothing is virtuous the result of which is not good. We know now, if we know anything, that all the reasons for doing right, and all the reasons against doing wrong, are here in this world.

„Until now, I had misunderstood the Satori, enlightenment of Zen Buddhism.
I had thought that satori is to die without fear anytime. But it is a wrong guess.
The satori is to live unconcernedly anytime.“
— Masaoka Shiki Japanese poet, author, and literary critic in Meiji period Japan 1867 - 1902
Jusqu'à maintenant, j'avais mal compris le Satori, ou l'objectif final du bouddhisme zen.
Je pensais que le satori est de mourir sans peur à tout moment. Mais il est fausse supposition.
Le satori est de vivre sereinement en tout temps.
