Tsurezuregusa (徒然草, Essays in Idleness) - collection of essays written by the Japanese monk Yoshida Kenkō between 1330 and 1332.

“It is typical of the unintelligent man to insist on assembling complete sets of everything. Imperfect sets are better.”

“If man were never to fade away like the dews of Adashino, never to vanish like the smoke over Toribeyama, but lingered on forever in this world, how things would lose their power to move us! The most precious thing in life is its uncertainty.
