  1. Nice quote!

    Taking inspiration from the Japanese text, I think replacing “recognize” with “know” yields a better English translation.

    Or, to make it even more poetic sounding, you can use “know” in both places:

    “Until you know real compassion, you can not know real love.”

      Thank you for the comment. If this quote was “Until you know real compassion, you can not know real love” then it is easier to translate as a Japanese speaker. Sometimes I take hours to translate a short sentence. I’m new to the states and I’m struggling translation everyday (-.-;)y-~~~ I know you are great English/Japanese translator!! I’m glad to hear from you. Thank you anyway!

       
      • My apologizes, I just realized that you were starting with an English quote and translating to Japanese, not the other way around.

        I should have read the post more carefully (:
