***************************************
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。

**********************************
Today is the official start of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics. The opening ceremony will be held at the Olympic Stadium this evening, but the games don’t start until tomorrow. Athletes from more than 160 different countries will take part in 22 sports. I’m looking forward to seeing men’s wheelchair tennis because I’m a fan of Kunieda Shingo. I also want to see goalball. It’s like soccer, but the people who play it are visually impaired (they cannot see well). Everyone wears goggles, and they have to listen for the ball which has a small bell inside. If you want to know more about Paralympic sports, go to their website and watch their one minute, one sport videos. (by Prof. Douglas Jarrell)
