Tao Te Ching Chapter 23-2 High wind II

Today's Tao

Therefore, a noisy high wind doesn't last all morning. (Ch.23)

Nature gives us a very good example.

A noisy high wing doesn't last long, even all morning.

It is about a Nine Days' wonder. We all know it.

In Japan, we say:

hito no uwasa mo sichi juu go nichi 人の噂も七十五日.

Literally it means "people's rumor lasts only for seventy five days".

Nine days and 75 days!

Certainly, the Japanese have learned Lao Tzu's patience for more than one thousand years.

-Without Ishiro Honda, we would not have had Godzilla. He was the one who directed the very first Gojira black and white. He was a magician of cinema who made the impossible possible. He was a friend of Akira Kurosawa. To the eyes of the Japanese kids in 60', the name of Ishiro Honda was more brilliant than that of his worldly known friend.
