Hajar - This chapter has some really wise quotes.

deportare - This quote came from a classic novel written by a world-renowned Japanese writer. Translation for this quote is challenging. How about this one? Which is natural English?

"Approach everything rationally, and you become harsh. Pole along in the stream of emotions, and you will be swept away by the current. Give free rein to your desires, and you become uncomfortably confined. It is not a very agreeable place to live, this world of ours."

Hajar - @deportare, I am wondering if it is possible to replace "harsh" with "strong". Also the last sentence seems a bit unnatural from the first sight, but the more I read it, it sounds very poetic and deep, so you can maintain it as it is.  Keep up the hard work. This novel is really interesting 😻
