Resilient Japanese Character

The title of Aaron's Levin's excellent article in the June 3 issue—"Japan's Resilience Eases Impact of Natural Disaster, which reported on the mental health response and recovery interventions for the "tripartite disaster triggered by the Great East Japan Earthquake"—echoes the observation of Robert Tomes, M.D., in his report as a member of the United States expedition to Japan under Commodore Perry almost 159 years ago: "Notwithstanding the calamities caused by the earthquake, there was shown a resiliency, in the Japanese character, which spoke well for their energy." This quote appears in The Americans in Japan by R. Tomes, published in 1857 by D. Appleton and Co. in New York.
