But monasteries everywhere tended to become dens of thieves, and it may be said that the quarrels of these warlike monks were entirely about material matters, and they rarely, if ever, indulged in sectarian persecution. The verses that occur in these texts have been put into the same form as the Japanese metre of five, seven, five, seven, seven syllables.

Like the dew on the morning glory are man and his house, who knows which will survive the other? The dew may fall and the flower remain, but only to wither in the morning sun, or the dew may stay on the withered flower, but it will not see another evening. During the forty years or so that I have lived since I began to understand the meaning of things I have seen not a few strange happenings.
