to walk

“What matters in life is not whether you succeed or not. It is to keep walking. However many times you trip or fall, to pick it up and keep walking.” Jose Mujica

The words of the poorest president in the world speak directly to us. It is him, himself. Not even a tiny bit of lie in it and that must be why it has such resonance. I am jealous and hopeful that at one point there was one country in this world that was led by someone like him.

「人生でいちばん大切なことは成功することでない。歩むことだ。何度転んだとしても、立ち上がり、歩み続けることだ。」ホセ・ムヒカ

世界一貧しい大統領のまっすぐな言葉は、その人の在り方そのもの。嘘のない言葉というのは、こんなにも響くんだなぁ。いいなぁ。こんな人に導かれる国がある。
