This kanji brings us both the straightness of railroad tracks and a term for “orbit” (usually elliptical). The shape isn’t important; the idea of a path is. Learn to say, “We can't know where the trajectory of our lives will take us,” “get the economy back on track,” “when your business gets going,” “We need a course correction,” “go off the rails,” and “He was really wild in his youth.”
