According to our belief, Japan was founded by the Sun Goddess Amaterasu Omikami, who is revered by the entire nation for her all-pervading virtue, and from whom our Imperial House is descended.
Quoted in "Contemporary Japan" - Page 422 - by Nihon Gaiji Kyokai - 1932
Frivolous thinking is due to foreign thought. Japan must no longer let the impudence of the white peoples go unpunished. It is the duty of Japan to fulfill her natural destiny, to cause China to respect the Japanese, to expel Chinese influence from Manchuria, and to follow the way of imperial destiny.Sadao Araki

In the light of these considerations, we find Hiroshi Saito, present Minister of Holland, the right person for the post.Sadao Araki
