Tao Te Ching Chapter 24-3 Express nothing
A man who expresses himself is not clearly seen. (Ch.24)
Don't try to convince others.
It is no use.
No matter how wrong it seems, they are doing the right thing.
"They are doing the right thing in their own world."
Well, you can say that.
If it is useful for you to think so, do it.
But it is not ideal.
Remember everything is one?
Therefore, their holograms are your hologram.
Don't act directly on the world, which is your hologram.

-Odoriko. The dancing girl. These two expressions don't seem to be the same. Kawabata's "odoriko" was a member of a band of poor wandering entertainers. "The dancing girl" is likely to provoke us an image of a well-dressed girl dancing to the Abba songs. Besides, a publishing company might need to hire a good lawyer nowadays if they want to publish a story about an innocent infatuation between a university student and a minor.
