The Tale of Princess Kaguya (2013) - Newly released clip [x]
You set out today across the ocean of life, with the wind in your sails and boundless prospects on the horizon. But life, as they say, has it’s ups and downs. It may seem easy when the waters are calm, but at times the waves will taunt you, tossing you in their swells. Take heart, and don’t get discouraged! Although it’s hard to make it on your own, even the stupidest couple can survive life’s challenges if they just stick together.
Children are the best reason for riding out life’s storms. Nowadays people say child-rearing is challenging and difficult. But we’ve done it from time immemorial. Children grow even without parents. So hold them close to your heart as they crawl, they walk. They’ll be fine.
Why must fireflies die so young?
