Favorite Nagas Quotes

1. "Japan learned from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki that the tragedy wrought by nuclear weapons must never be repeated and that humanity and nuclear weapons cannot coexist."
Author: Daisaku Ikeda
2. "The descent to barbarism had begun with Rotterdam. It ended with Dresden and then with Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Whatever moral differences had existed when the war began were erased by its end. The victors had been morally conquered by the enemy."
Author: David McReynolds
3. "Quiero que los poetas dejen de llamarse poetas y comiencen a llamarse sueños y que los sueños comiencen a llamarse estrellas o luciérnagas o arroyos o triciclos"
Author: David Meza
4. "Linnaeus's last lesson, of which he himself was unaware, was that professorships kill philosophers. Oh, I'm vain enough to want my burgeoning Flora Japonica to be published one day--as a votive offering to human knowledge--but a seat at Uppsala, or Leiden, or Cambridge, holds no allure. My heart is the East's in this lifetime. This is my third year in Nagasaki, and I have work enough for another three, or six. During the court embassy I can see landscapes no European botanist ever saw. My seminarians are keen young men--with one young woman--and visiting scholars bring me specimens from all over the empire."
Author: David Mitchell
5. "Hiroshima and Nagasaki were atomized at a time when the Japanese were suing desperately for peace."
Author: David T. Dellinger

Author: Haruki Murakami
8. "Yo no soy tan fuerte. A mi me importa que me entiendan. Hay personas a quienes quiero comprender y quiero que me comprendan. Hasta cierto punto, pienso que es inevitable que el resto de la gnete no lo haga. Ya me he hecho a la idea. Así que no me ocurre lo mismo que a Nagasawa, a quien no le importa que no le entiendan."
Author: Haruki Murakami
9. "Quiero llegar hasta donde pueda empleando todas mis fuerzas. Tomando lo que quiero, dejando lo que no quiero. Así es como vivo. Si meto la pata, me detengo y lo reconsidero. Si uno le da la vuelta a esta sociedad injusta, entiende que en el mundo puede explotar sus posibilidades. -Nagasawa"
Author: Haruki Murakami
10. "Arrebatada, repentina, inevitable, la felicidad cruza dejándonos el silencio como hacen los ángeles y las luciérnagas, igual que un colibrí o las hadas."
Author: Henning Mankell

Author: Henry L. Stimson
12. "(...)Él siempre estaba allí, contemplando el frío brillo de las estrellas, admirando el increíble enjambre nebuloso de un racimode estrellas, como una conglomeración gigante de luciérnagas sorprendidas enpleno vuelo y detenidas para siempre."
Author: Isaac Asimov
13. "35. Not every environment accepts the progress you want to put across. Take a second look at what you dream about, be sure it can progress very well at where you are; Hiroshima and Nagasaki are not fertile grounds for a farmer's dream seeds. Go and relocate!"
Author: Israelmore Ayivor
14. "Science has nothing to be ashamed of even in the ruins of Nagasaki. The shame is theirs who appeal to other values than the human imaginative values which science has evolved."
Author: Jacob Bronowski
15. "Nosotros considerábamos las luciérnagas un regalo y las hormigas una plaga, pero por primera vez se me ocurrió plantearme el porqué de esa distinción. Todas ellas eran criaturas que intentaban sobrevivir a la sequía, igual que nosotros. Pensé que Viola debía rendirse y dejarlas tranquilas, aunque lo reconsideré al descubrir que la pimienta negra en la ensalada de huevo no era precisamente pimienta."
Author: Jacqueline Kelly
16. "Nations tend to see the other side's war atrocities as systemic and indicative of their culture and their own atrocities as justified or the acts of stressed combatants. In my travels, I sense a smoldering resentment towards WWII Japanese behavior among some Americans. Ironically, these feelings are strongest among the younger American generation that did not fight in WWII. In my experience, the Pacific vets on both sides have made their peace. And in terms of judgments, I will leave it to those who were there. As Ray Gallagher, who flew on both atomic missions against Hiroshima and Nagasaki argues, "When you're not at war you're a good second guesser. You had to live those years and walk that mile."
Author: James D. Bradley
17. "Now when I look back to the Guildford of that time, it seems far more exotic to me than Nagasaki."
Author: Kazuo Ishiguro
18. "(If God wills it)... the number of angels... may be infinite... Blessed are they that have not seen and yet have believed. Once upon a time, atoms did not exist. There was no Dalton, no Rutherford. Albert Einstein was nothing more than a theorist, but you only have to look at Hiroshima and Nagasaki to know that things invisible exist and bear great power. The power to destroy. Or the power to create... Atoms and angels, reason and faith... One without the other is less than half as strong and can be a danger to our vitality. Reason is subject to the tests of logic and observable, demonstrable phenomena. Faith is tested by our desire and will. One cannot see faith, just as one cannot pour out hope or love from a beaker. Self-sacrifice and devotion escape the strongest microscope, but such qualities of spirit can be shown and known by us all... And so with God's messengers, more believed than seen, more felt than touched, our angel's exist in open hearts, if we have but faith."
Author: Keith Donohue
19. "Anyone who saw Nagasaki would suddenly realize that they'd been kept in the dark by the United States government as to what atomic bombs can do."
Author: Lawrence Ferlinghetti
20. "Nothing new about death, nothing new about deaths caused militarily. We scorched and boiled and baked to death more people in Tokyo on that night of March 9-10 than went up in vapor at Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined."
Author: Ronald Schaffer

ToadstoolsThe toadstools are starting to comeup, circular and dry.Nothing will touch them,Gophers or chipmunks, wasps or swallows.They glow in the twilight like rooted will-o'-the-wisps.Nothing will touch them.As though little roundabouts from the bunched unburiable,Powers, dominions,As though orphans rode herd in the short grass, as though they had heard the call,They will always be with us, transcenders of the world.Someone will try to stick his beak into their otherworldly styrofoam.Someone may try to taste a taste of forever.For some it's a refuge, for some a shady place to fall down.Grief is a floating barge-boat, who knows where it's going to moor?"
Author: Charles Wright
