Some days I have a lot to say, other days I have nothing. New Year or not, today is one of the latter.

NIN

shino(bu)

meaning: endure, stealth

忍び足 == shinobiashi == (noun) stealthy steps, soft steps
忍苦 == ninku == (noun) endurance, stoicism




Bottom radical is 'heart/feelings' (心). Top radical is 'blade' (刃), used phonetically to express 'bear'. To 'bear something in the heart' is to endure it. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Endure pain of blade in heart.'
