Food for Thought

To think well, after all, is to use language well. But this does not necessarily mean knowing more words. You could have a hundred knives and not know how to use them well.

After high school, during the summer break, I worked for a sushi restaurant in Tokyo. The chef gave me this knife as a farewell gift. He said this was the first knife he bought in his long career. Because I moved to the US for college, I never saw him again. I’m pretty sure he has passed away since
