When I woke up today all grumpy because of my cold, cough, and body pain, I didn’t think that my spirits will be lifted by some snow (how ironic). I literally jumped up and down with glee. This is the scene just outside my window. It can not get better than this πŸ™‚

Serenity

β€œWe are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy. If we are to die in a minute, why not die happily, laughing? (136-137)”

WPC: Transformation

β€œWhat transforms this world is β€” knowledge. Do you see what I mean? Nothing else can change anything in this world. Knowledge alone is capable of transforming the world, while at the same time leaving it exactly as it is. When you look at the world with knowledge, you realize that things are unchangeable and at the same time are constantly being transformed.”
― Yukio Mishima,Β The Temple of the Golden Pavilion
