„For ’t is always fair weather
When good fellows get together
With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear.“

„When the weather is good for crops it is also good for weeds.“

—  Theodore Roosevelt American politician, 26th president of the United States 1858 - 1919
Context: We are passing through a period of great commercial prosperity, and such a period is as sure as adversity itself to bring mutterings of discontent. At a time when most men prosper somewhat some men always prosper greatly; and it is as true now as when the tower of Siloam fell upon all alike, that good fortune does not come solely to the just, nor bad fortune solely to the unjust. When the weather is good for crops it is also good for weeds.

„The rain has stopped, the clouds have drifted away, and the weather is clear again.“

—  Ryōkan Japanese Buddhist monk 1758 - 1831
Context: The rain has stopped, the clouds have drifted away, and the weather is clear again. If your heart is pure, then all things in your world are pure. Abandon this fleeting world, abandon yourself, Then the moon and flowers will guide you along the Way.
