Memoirs of a Geisha

Arthur Golden's thoughts/lines in Memoirs of a Geisha that struck me:

* "... I won't pretend these parties did anything to lessen my suffering; but they di help remind me just how selfish my suffering really was."

* "Friendship is a precious thing, Sayuri. One mustn't throw it away."

* " I'm a very easy man to understand, sayuri. I don't like things held up before me that I cannot have."

* I never seek to defeat the man I am fighting, Iseek to defeat his confidence. ..."

These are common thoughts. It's very good of Arthur Golden to have stated or used those thoughts strikingly. The story moved me.
