Life In Every Breath

September 11, 2022
Katsumoto:
…You do not fear death, but sometimes you wish for it. Is this not so?
Algren:
Yes.
Katsumoto:
I, also. It happens to men who have seen what we have seen. And then I come to this place of my ancestors, and I remember: like these blossoms, we are all dying. To know life in every breath. Every cup of tea. Every life we take.
The Way of the Warrior.
Algren:
(whispers) Life in every breath….
Katsumoto:
That is Bushidō.
