Hagakure is possibly the most iconic writing on Samurai philosophy, compiled by Tsuramoto Tashimo from the wisdom of Yamamoto Tsunetomo at the turn of the eighteenth century. This is my favourite quote:
The Northwind is a personal website and blog for the exploration of the personal interests, the adventures, the successes, and the trials of its author. You'll find subjects from history, politics, and activism to technology, media, and video games.
Often nerdy, occasionally frivolous, sometimes serious, and hopefully always interesting.
