* The concept of gaman is central to the musical [Allegiance] starring GeorgeTakei and loosely based on his own experiences in an internment camp during world War ii. The Japanese inmates initially turn to gaman to help them survive the camps, but the concept is also deconstructed as some younger inmates try to take whatever agency and power they can get and even rebel against the camps guards.

* As already explained, Mexicans has their own version of this, and unlike the Japanese, this is ''not'' portrayed as a good thing. Due to an unholy combination of ValuesDissonance (internal and external), CulturalCringe, CulturalPosturing, many problems with crime and corruption in many parts of the Mexican society and [[SelfDeprecation fatalism taken to the extreme]], Mexicans are normally taught to tolerate many bad things that can befall them, but when the Mexicans decide they have had ''enough'' of tolerating too much crap, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014_Iguala_mass_kidnapping the results are NOT pretty]].

Those interested in linguistics may want to compare this to the Russian word ''nicho'' (нечо), which literally translates to 'nothing' but is more often used as meaning 'there's nothing to be done about it." It has connotations of futility or extreme fatalism (but depending on context, it can also mean nonchalant dismissal as in 'nothing happened, really') and also bears some resemblance to the American English saying "Shit happens", although that has more [[ObligatorySwearing swearing]]. A Mexican version of this is named ''Ni modo'' (roughly translated as ''No way (to do this)''), but it carries more negative connotations than their Japanese and Russian counterparts, due to the severe ValuesDissonance not only between Mexico and the U.S. but also between other regions of the country. The Portuguese saying "Fazer o que?" ("What can I do?") has a pretty similar meaning, even carrying the negative connotations of its japanese counterpart.

One attribute highly prized in Japanese society is that of "gaman", or "endurance". Gaman is the quality of enduring what seems unbearable with dignity and grace. The idea basically that is that if there's something unpleasant around you, it's better to tough it out in an act of self-sacrifice rather than act immediately to change it.

it. It's similar to Calvin's Dad's belief in the comic strip ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes'' that suffering builds character.
