Hi, just found your site for Hebrew and like that you’re actually dealing with GRAMMAR and not just expecting everyone to memorize confusing long sentences that they don’t have a clue about. I like to build understanding with vocabulary/grammar/sentences/practice, so I can understand what I”M saying and progress from there. I hate what I’ve found on other sites where they assume my brain is still just 5 years old and can absorb languages effortlessly. Nope. I need the structure and to progress from the very simple to the more increasingly complicated. That’s how they do it in the military’s Defense… Read more »

Hey,

I have been getting your emails for some time and I noticed they could use some love.

We are seeing 50% open rates across all of our emails sent and I would love to do the same for you.

Can I send you some more info?

Your Russian saying number 47 has two errors in the English translation: it should read “Work is not a wolf: it won’t run away into the forest.” (Remove the article in front of “work,” and eliminate the double negative.) Normal Russian tolerates double negatives, while in standard English they cancel out. (In back-country regions, you might hear such picturesque expressions as “I ain’t had no lovin’ in a long long time.,” or “I ain’t got nuttin to say about dat.” More importantly, your use of proverbs and sayings to learn Russian is a wonderful initiative, from which I have already… Read more »

@Kevin, I found the line you’re looking for:
義務は山より重く、死は羽毛より軽いと覚悟せよ。

義務は山より重く – mugi wa yama yori omoku (duty is heavier than the mountain) 死は羽毛より軽い – shi wa umou yori karui (death is lighter than a feather) と覚悟せよ to kakugo seyo ( this is just the verb to prepare/get ready to face). So, you might want to drop the “と覚悟せよ。” if you want just the mountain/feather part: 義務は山より重く、死は羽毛より軽い

If you search this on the japanese wikisource link you provided, you’ll find it. This matches your line however note that it’s part of a bigger sentence if you mind (世論に惑わず、政治に関わることなく、ただ一途におのれの本分たる忠節を守り、義務は山より重く、死は羽毛より軽いと覚悟せよ).

I have been searching for the quote “Duty is as heavy as a mountain, death is as light as a feather” in Japanese. It is reported to be from the Imperial Rescript to Soldiers and Sailors issued by Emperor Meiji of Japan on 4 January 1882. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperial_Rescript_to_Soldiers_and_Sailors I thought I might have found the source in Japanese at: https://ja.wikisource.org/wiki/%E9%99%B8%E6%B5%B7%E8%BB%8D%E8%BB%8D%E4%BA%BA%E3%81%AB%E8%B3%9C%E3%81%AF%E3%82%8A%E3%81%9F%E3%82%8B%E5%8B%85%E8%AB%AD But Google Translate doesn’t pick out anything recognizable for me. I would like to have the text to have a t-shirt and business cards printed with the historically correct Japanese version. I haven’t found anything identified as such with several hours… Read more »

I have a scroll that was given to my husband when he was doing work in
Korea in 1956. I’d like to put it into a frame for hanging. Before i do
that I’d like to have the letters and words interpreted. My husband knew
it very well, as it’s some saying that is beautiful, but I don’t
remember what it is. He is now deceased and I would like to know what
the scroll means. Can someone help me? I would so appreciate any help I
can get.
