Protect yourself against cold when it begins
and welcome it at its end,
for it acts on bodies as it acts on trees:
at first it scorches and parches;
at the end it causes leaves to sprout.
“To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don’t grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float.”
-Alan W. Watts
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing."
