Philosophical Walk to Jinmu-ji Temple (Yokohama, Japan)

Promotion of Philosophy

Blessed with fine weather, we held a philosophy walk towards Jinmu-ji Temple.
While walking along the mountain path with a quote collection in hand, we had a heartwarming conversation. Dialogues in nature are always fun, no matter how many times you experience it.
After taking a leisurely walk around the temple grounds, we continued to share our thoughts within the temple grounds. Thanks in part to the comfortable atmosphere, it was a time when everyone could honestly talk about the quotes they chose and why they chose them.
These were some of the famous quotes discussed:

  • Those who do not know how to obey others cannot be good leaders. (Aristotle)
  • Life is a horse. Either you ride the horse or the horse takes you. (Socrates)
  • For something to be useful, something must be used to do something. (Lao Tzu)
  • Every day should be seen as a completely different life. (Seneca)
  • What you think in your heart will come true. Good luck comes to those who have the right heart. (Buddha)
  • Where is happiness? People who love honor see it in the actions of others. People who love pleasure think that it is in their emotions. Enlightened people think that it is in their actions. (Marcus Aurelius Antoninus)
  • As long as you don’t stop, you can move forward no matter how slowly. (Confucius)
  • Every stonemason knows this. If you don’t have small stones, you won’t be able to build a stone wall with just big stones. (Plato)
  • Virtue is harmony. (Pythagoras)
  • Forgiveness is better than revenge. (Epictetus)
