Enjoy What’s Enjoyable

A friend of mine said, “Only Heaven knows what happiness or sorrow awaits us. I haven’t any issue with that. We should enjoy what’s enjoyable, without being unsatisfied about it. Even more so, we should share our enjoyments together with others.”
The Second Year of Kaei, The Seventh of Intercalary April. “On the Occasion of Congratulating the Viewing of the Military of Kodamakun Kan-mishima”

10日楽しむ処を楽しむ
徒(中略)曰く、「遇不遇は天のみ、我れに於いて何かあらん。我れは我が楽しむ所を楽しみ、以って慊らざることなかるべし。況や人の共に其の楽しむ所を楽しむあるをや」と。
嘉永二年閏四月七日「児玉君管美島軍事を拝するを賀する序」
