Japanese Saying on ‘trustfulness’, the Bushido virtue for tattoo
This proverb/saying represents exactly what ‘trustfulness/Veracity’, one of the 7 bushido(the way of samurai) virtues, means to Samurai .
The literal translation of this saying is like this.
Samurai has no second words
- 武士に: Samurai
- 二言は: second word
- 無い: no
For a Samurai, being honest and trustful is much more important than his own life. If he says something, he will do it no matter what, he will grow that thing into reality. True Samurai never goes back on his word because it is just dishonourable and shameful.
lying was not condemned as sin, but simply denounced as weakness, and, as such, highly dishonourable.
