More Information



from the Preface
by Hideo Takahashi
The phrases in this book were spoken by Masahisa Goi (whom we usually call ‘Goi Sensei’) in casual moments, as we walked together near our office, or stood on a platform waiting for a train, or chatted during breaks in our publication room.

Even now, whenever I reread them, my heart is illuminated by the marvelous wisdom of Goi Sensei’s words, which are truly light itself. Perhaps this I why I decided not to try to edit them, or produce a highly polished volume. Instead, I wanted to offer his words to you just as I heard them, believing that whichever page you turn to in the book, you will find gems worth treasuring.
