Cathy N. Davidson

  • ... Americans are so often thrown by Japan. It looks familiar but, an inch below the surface, it isn't anything like the West at all.

  • ... the Japanese school year begins in spring ... so mothers can send off their children as cherry blossoms fall from the branches.

  • 'I will do my best' is a favorite Japanese expression, and, in, Japan, one's best must be very, very good.

  • Leaving can sometimes be the best way to never go away.

Cathy N. Davidson, U.S. writer, educator

(1949)
