Japan is built, at some deep, invisible level, around the Buddhist law of the reality of suffering; my Japanese family and neighbors are not inclined to complain about circumstances so much as to deal, silently and efficiently, with the hands they’re dealt.

Pico Iyer, essayist, novelist, and resident of Japan, reflecting on how the country’s culture of resilience and stoicism helps it weather cataclysms like the March earthquake and tsunami. (BusinessWeek)
