Real love and choices

I came across this quote today:

No one falls in love by choice, it is by chance. No one stays in love by chance, it is by work. And no one falls out of love by chance, it is by choice.

Here’s my clumsy attempt at translation:

愛上一個人與否是無法選擇,是偶然發生的。
能持續愛一個人不是偶然,需要持續耕耘的。
不再愛上一個人不會是偶然發生,是要做出抉擇的。

State of mind

Tough period at work and in personal life, words to help finding a way through.

順境時謹慎,逆境時堅強。

Life lessons

Just finished reading A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Future: Twists and Turns and Lessons Learned by Michael J. Fox which I gather is an expansion of the speech he delivered to college graduates(?). It’s a small volume that many can probably finish in a night. I had known about about his struggles with Parkinson’s Disease but really had no ideas what a remarkable character he is. Currently going through some trying times but his attitude is really uplifting and inspirational. Now I am looking forward to reading his memoir soon too.

On wings

Saw this quote yesterday, which somehow resonated with me. Many years ago someone had encouraged me to “soar on wings like eagles” but I guess I have lacked ambition since.

Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings.

Happiness, freedom and peace of mind

Saw this quote today. Couldn’t agree more.

There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life – happiness, freedom and peace of mind – are always attained by giving them to someone else.
