Quote: Ryunosuke Akutagawa

"A man sometimes devotes his life to a desire which he is not sure will ever be fulfilled. Those who laugh at this folly are, after all, no more than mere spectators of life."
- Ryunosuke Akutagawa
March 1, 1892 - July 24, 1927

Visiting Akutagawa's grave was the highlight of my trip to Japan this past January.
