  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    La vie n'est jamais statique, et c'est ce que je trouve le plus beau. il est beau, en raison de ses hauts et des bas, des courbures, des ronds-points et des routes droites, et flux et reflux en général. Rien n'est permanent, et seule constante est le changement constant. "Même ce passera" est le mantra et un rappel constant pour nous, toutes les fois que nous nous sentons heureux avec les flux de la vie, et aussi dans les moments les plus sombres quand nous nous sentons bas et avec les reflux de la vie. Les déceptions, les trahisons, les sentiments d'impuissance, étant seul, tous ceux-ci seront reflué, comme la vie continue. c'est incroyable de voir comment la vie peut être si gentil et bon, et en même temps si amer et froid .... et pourtant tout doit passer. alors profitez-en aujourd'hui, et vivre ce moment au maximum, en profitant des flux et reflux de la vie.

  3. Josh Morris:
