Gains from The Lily of the Valley

Viewed 404 times 2017-7-3 21:00 |System category:Life

I have been reading a book called The Lily of the Valley. I suppose some of you would be interested in reading it. It is a great book which instructs us a lot about life. From this book, from the letter to Felix, a mother of severak children gave her learnings about the world, the rules she knew from the social world to her dear friend, Felix, who she saw as her children but who in fact fell in love with her. Felix and the mother held a balanced relationship in which they didn't intrude too much to cause great troubles in their life. Contrarily, they shared sorrows and joys while they are together. They showed empathy to each other. They are more friends than lovers. He is more of a child to her than of a lover.

From this great mother or great friend of Felix's, we shall not shoulder so many troubles caused to us by others who may do so unintentionally. Being indifferent to most people is likely to be the best tactic while getting along with others just as in a situation where you can talk to most girls like a great gentleman but only love one who you set your destiny for. While our hearts are away from so many troubles, we can whole-heartedly devote ourselves into our work to fulfil our dreams

    Never ending 'war on terror' is no accident. With capitalists or against them. And yes change in media and CIA taking complete control is no accident. These actions are actually proof of how scared and weak the American 'elite' are and people hate them more now than in the 90s. JJ  Abraham cannot save them. It's only a matter of time. Conditions are now perfect to destroy them

    Only simple people can be happy with a simple life. I am not a simple person - I am quite complicated.

    HailChina!: Have you ever seen the show 'The Simple Life'? It was an American TV show featuring millionaires Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie and it was about them ...
    You must have got a lot of feelings for what has been done by American media. Terrorist actions are always big blows in America. Maybe the media knew what "the most familiar" to people is what "the most eye-catching to them" . When peace and prosperity were all around America, the media sold peace and prosperity; when terrorist actions and "having fun of the disadvantaged" are so permeated in people's hearts, especially the rich, the media sell those. Commerce runs as it does but we can be not just as what the reality tells us. We may be different from people of other times; yet, we must share the same nature of being. No matter what "realtiy" shows us, the nature of being shall lead us half step forward with half step in thinking through "reality". The reality is so complicated that unveiling real happiness out of simple life will be so precious and cherished.
