FULL WHEN EMPTY

I saw a sign on a dumpster once
It said: Empty When Full
I must have seen this sign
A thousand times
But this time what I saw was:
Full When Empty
It has turned into my koan

    Here's a good article entitled "True Budo: Contextualizing Japanese Text and Quotes" by Marc Trudel which explicates and provides some research into the sometimes repeated quote of "This is the ideal budo — true Judo" as reportedly written by the founder of Judo, Jigoro Kano, according to author John Stevens. Well worth a read.
