„Ups and downs are inevitable in life. The more favourable the situation, the humbler we need to be. Keep bitterness to ourselves and leave happiness to others.“

Quotes from Words of Wisdoms Vol.2
Original: (zh_Hant) 人生的高高低低都是正常的, 越是好的時候,越要低頭, 好的時候要謙卑; 把苦留給自己,把快樂留給別人。

„There is no happiness without knowledge. But knowledge of happiness is unhappy; for knowing ourselves happy is knowing ourselves passing through happiness, and having to, immediatly at once, leave it behind. To know is to kill, in happiness as in everything. Not to know, though, is not to exist.“

—  Fernando Pessoa, livro Livro do Desassossego

Ibid., p. 328
The Book of Disquiet
Original: Não há felicidade senão com conhecimento. Mas o conhecimento da felicidade é infeliz; porque conhecer-se feliz é conhecer-se passando pela felicidade, e tendo, logo já, que deixá-la atrás. Saber é matar, na felicidade como em tudo. Não saber, porém, é não existir.

„The Wine of Life keeps oozing drop by drop,
The Leaves of Life keep falling one by one.“

—  Omar Khayyám Persian poet, philosopher, mathematician, and astronomer 1048 - 1131

Whether the Cup with sweet or bitter run,
The Wine of Life keeps oozing drop by drop,
The Leaves of Life keep falling one by one.
