Kotowaza of the day: Think disposable chopsticks
- Hachiku no ikioi
- Meaning of Japanese:
- The force required to split bamboo*
- English equivalents:
- Ready to leap over nine hedges
Sweep all before oneself
*This refers to the great force that must be applied to split bamboo (or any other wood) with the grain. However, once that momentum is reached and the initial split achieved, completing the job is only a matter of following through.
