The Hagakure was compiled in the early 18th century, but was kept as a kind of “secret teaching” of the Nabeshima clan until the end of the Tokugawa bakufu These radical concepts—including ultimate devotion to the Emperor, regardless of rank or clan—put him at odds with the reigning shogunate. Instead, Tsunetomo felt true samurai should act without hesitation to fulfill their duties, without regard for success or failure. This romantic sentiment is of course expressed by warriors throughout history, though it may run counter to the art of war itself.
The World of the Warrior,  historian Stephen Turnbull describes the role of seppuku in feudal Japan: In the world of the warrior, seppuku was a deed of bravery that was admirable in a samurai who knew he was defeated, disgraced, or mortally wounded. It meant that he could end his days with his transgressions wiped away and with his reputation not merely intact but actually enhanced. Indeed, a “good death” is its own reward, and by no means assurance of “future rewards” in the afterlife.

Etymology[ edit ] Linear B tablets attest to the personal name Achilleus in the forms a-ki-re-u and a-ki-re-we,  the latter being the dative of the former. The poem is in part about the misdirection of anger on the part of leadership. The shift from -dd- to -ll- is then ascribed to the passing of the name into Greek via a Pre-Greek source. The whole expression would be comparable to the Latin acupedius “swift of foot”.

I loved babies, and it was a delight to help care for them. Children were the greatest miracle in my eyes, and I spent all my free time babysitting.
Every time I rocked a baby to sleep, I dreamed of someday cuddling my own little one. Being with children, reading Bible stories, singing, playing hide and seek, wiping away tiny tears, laughing together, and kissing away little boo boos were my greatest joys in life. In the late summer of , after a fairy tale romance and blissful wedding, I settled into married life with my Prince Charming. He was everything I ever hoped for in a husband and more than I even dreamed a man could be.
Our life seemed absolutely perfect! I graduated from college the spring after we married and was thrilled when my diploma arrived.
