“Nana-kai ochiru, tachiagaru hachi.”
“Fall down seven times, stand up eight”
– Japanese Proverb [See Notes for translation information]
Quote Number: 293
Source Notes: This translation was made with Google Translate and may not be grammatically correct. I believe that this is a literal translation, but may more accurately translate to “seven falls, eight rises,” but this is the closest I could get.
Also, I am recording all proverbs as attributed because there is little record of the origin of nearly all proverbs, and many of the ideas and concepts from proverbs are found in similar sayings in other languages and cultural traditions.
