Famous quotes containing the word japanese:

    The Japanese have perfected good manners and made them indistinguishable from rudeness.
    Paul Theroux (b. 1941)

    No human being can tell what the Russians are going to do next, and I think the Japanese actions will depend much on what Russia decides to do both in Europe and the Far East—especially in Europe.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    The Japanese are, to the highest degree, both aggressive and unaggressive, both militaristic and aesthetic, both insolent and polite, rigid and adaptable, submissive and resentful of being pushed around, loyal and treacherous, brave and timid, conservative and hospitable to new ways.
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)
