Those One Cannot Hate

The new Lieutenant Commander bowed and withdrew from the Great Commander-in-Chief’s presence. He returned to his column and looked up at the blue sky where the stars of the Great Major should be.

“Oh, Great Major! May this world be the place where one doesn’t have to kill those one cannot hate. If this could be realized, I wouldn’t mind my body being torn many a time.”

—Kenji Miyazawa, “The Crow and the Great Major,” from Ihatov Fairy Tales: A Restaurant with Many Orders”
