He was a master in changing words "to be conveyed" into ones "that can be understood."

Kazuo Inoue



It sometimes happens that we thought we had told some other person something but it turned out that he/she didn't understand. When conveying things he wanted to put his thought in or important things he had heard in everyday life, broadcast writer and songwriter, Rokusuke Ei, "covered them with laughter" instead, an editor who worked on his book said. The same surely goes for education. I think higher priority should be given to a nice place where children can grow up on their own than teaching and training. From "Communicating Person, Rokusuke Ei."
