Tagore wrote in “Flying Birds”: “If you cry because you miss the sun, you will also miss the stars.”
In the long journey of life, it is impossible for everything to go well, and there will always be regrets.
The past has become history, and those lost regrets and past pains should not be fetters on the way forward.
Grasping the present moment is the correct attitude towards life.

Don’t dwell on yesterday, only then can you laugh and laugh
“A Difficult Journey Part One”
Tang Li Bai
A golden bottle of sake is worth ten thousand dollars, and a jade plate is worth ten thousand dollars for delicacies.
Stopping the cup and throwing the chopsticks, I can’t eat, I draw my sword and look around in a daze.
If you want to cross the Yellow River, which is blocked by ice, you will climb the Taihang Mountains covered with snow.
When I was free to fish on the Bixi River, I suddenly dreamed of taking a boat to the side of the sun.
Difficult to travel! Difficult to travel! There are many divergent roads, where are you today?
There will be times when the wind and the waves cleave, hang the clouds and sail straight to the sea.
This poem was written when Li Bai was “expelled in disguise” and left Chang’an. No one understands his melancholy and frustration at this time, but he still writes boldly and broadly, full of hope for the future, and we are still moved by him thousands of years later.
Life won’t always be easy, but it won’t be as bad as you think either.
Li Ka-shing said: “When you are unsatisfactory, don’t dwell on sadness, think about the days when you have laughter.”
Yesterday, who abandoned me, was already irretrievable, and I made up with myself right now.
The heart is one inch wide, and the sea is open to all rivers, and good luck comes naturally.

Only by not being attached to yesterday can we move forward briskly
Everyone should learn to endure their own sadness in life. Only in this way can you travel lightly in the days to come.
Do not confuse the mind, only then can there be an open world
“Tixi Forest Wall”
Song Su Shi
Viewed horizontally as ridges and sideways as peaks, the distance and height are different.
I don’t know the true face of Lushan Mountain, just because I am in this mountain.
“The authorities are confused, but the bystanders are clear.” The reason why we can’t see “Mount Lu” clearly is because the poet is in this mountain; if we can’t see through life, it is because we have lost our way in life.
The Buddha said: “To give up is to get, to get is to give up.”
If you are stubborn, you will easily get into dead ends, which will only increase your troubles. If you change your angle, you will be able to survive.
As stated in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon:
When you hold your hands tightly, there is nothing inside; when you open your hands, the world is in your hands.
Life is in a hurry, and the years are fleeting. Don’t worry about the mountains and the mountains.
In this life, I only wish to let go of the fleeting things and pick up the gorgeous life; I can give up the trivial things and pick up the peace and tranquility.

Let go of things outside of you, so that you can spend today with peace of mind
“Returning to the Garden and Living in the Field Part One”
Eastern Jin·Tao Yuanming
There are few suitable vulgar rhymes, but sex originally loves hills and mountains.
Falling into the dust net by mistake, it has been thirty years since then.
The birds love the old forest, and the fish in the pond think about the old abyss.
Opening up the wasteland and the southern wilderness, keep the humble and return to the garden.
The square house is more than ten acres, and there are eight or nine thatched cottages.
The back eaves of elm and willow shade, the front of peach and plum hall.
Warm and warm in the distant village, the smoke in Yiyixu.
Dogs bark in the deep alley, chickens crow on top of mulberry trees.
Houses and courtyards are free from dust and miscellaneous, empty rooms have leisure.
After being in a cage for a long time, I can return to nature.
The one who didn’t bow down for five buckets of rice was Tao Yuanming. In order to support his family, he came to Pengze, not far from his hometown, as the county magistrate.
This winter, when his superior came to inspect the business, although it was an inspection, he actually took the opportunity for personal gain. Tao Yuanming usually despised fame and wealth, and refused to follow others.
Although he was reluctant in every possible way, he had to go to see him, so he set off immediately.
Unexpectedly, the county magistrate stopped Tao Yuanming and said: “My lord, see that the governor must dress neatly, otherwise the governor will make a big fuss.”
This time, Tao Yuanming couldn’t bear it anymore. With a long sigh, he said, “I can’t bow down to the villain for five buckets of rice!”
It means how can I humbly bribe and show courteousness to these villains for the county magistrate’s five-dou salary.
After all, he simply took out the official seal, sealed it, and immediately wrote a letter of resignation, and then left Pengze County, where he had only been the county magistrate for more than 80 days.
He is upright and magnanimous like him, living the life he wants to live, doing what he wants to do, and not being influenced by the outside world.

In Aesop’s fables:
Some people want more things because of greed, but lose what they have now.
There are too many temptations in life that hinder our progress. Only when we look down on fame and fortune can happiness come.
For the rest of my life, I will be an upright gentleman, not greedy, not indulgent, and accumulate myself through the years to become a better person.
Do well today, so you won’t regret it
Today after today, today is so little!
If you don’t do it today, when will this happen?
Don’t wait for tomorrow to be sad if everything is over today.
Don’t think about the future, the most stupid thing in the world is to have great ambitions, but waste your time.
Life is too short to wait for you to live a clear life, and even when you are old, there is only one sigh left.
Time does not wait for me, cherish every day of life, based on the present, grasp the present, let the past no longer regret, and make the future full of hope.
Only by living in the present moment can we understand the true meaning of life.
A philosopher once said: “There is only one time that we need to grasp, and that is now. Only by grasping the present can we make a difference.”
As the poem says, if you lose the flowers, you have the fruits; if you lose the fruits, you have the seeds; if you lose the seeds, you have a vibrant spring!
The past is scattered with the wind, and the time is nowhere to be found. Only by grasping the present can we have a better tomorrow.
May every day in the future be the most brilliant day for the rest of your life, and may you live up to every ray of breeze! Cherish every sunrise! Live up to Qiuyue and live up to Qing!
