"But try to think. If honest people cannot win in this world, then who else could?" ~ Botchan
There are many savage opinions from Botchan in this book, they're fun to read. Some of them are exactly the things that sometimes come to my mind about the society.
Turns out many annoying things that happened in 1900s are still happening now, and it is just, sad. Like how people do things without taking any responsibility to the consequences. I guess c'est la vie!
