*****************************************
Moon viewing day is on September 21 this year. You will be able to see a full moon if the weather is good. Many people in Japan will go outside to see it, and shops will sell special sweets for the occasion. But you don’t have to wait until next Tuesday to see a beautiful moon. I looked outside last night and saw a half moon. I used my binoculars to get a better view. It was smaller than a full moon, but the craters were very clear, especially near the dark side. You can see where the Apollo 11 astronauts landed if you look it up on a map of the moon. Don’t wait for Tuesday. Go out and take a look at the moon tonight. (by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)

***************************************
If A equals success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y plus Z, with X being work, Y play, and Z keeping your mouth shut. (Albert Einstein)
A=成功ならば、「A=X+Y+Z」となり、「X」は仕事、「Y」は遊び、「Z」は口を閉じていることになります。

I want to bring out of the secrets of nature and apply them for the happiness of man. I don’t know of any better service to offer for the short time we are in the world. (Thomas Edison)
私は自然の秘密を引き出し、それを人間の幸福のために応用したいのです。私たちがこの世にいる短い時間の間に、これ以上のサービスを提供する方法を知りません。

Modesty is to what shadows are to a picture, which give it force and relief. (Issac Newton)
謙虚さとは、絵に力強さと安心感を与える影のようなものです。
