Nanao Sakaki: If you have time to chatter books

Nanao Sakaki: If you have time to chatter, Read Books. If you have time to read books, Walk into mountain, desert and Ocean. If you have time to walk, Sing a song and dance. If you have time to dance, Sit quietly, you, happy lucky idiot.

If you have time to chatter,
Read Books.
If you have time to read books,
Walk into mountain, desert and Ocean.
If you have time to walk,
Sing a song and dance.
If you have time to dance,
Sit quietly, you, happy lucky idiot.
