Ever seen that Spartacus series? How the owner of the gladiators kidnaps that wealthy Patrician guy? And has him tied to a chair underground as part of some wretched scheme? And the Patrician tells the wretch the he - the Patrician - is better? And the plebe knows it is true? You capitalists know what you are too don't you.

I sense you are a good man at heart, just hyperventilating at the hypocrisies in the world.

And from an elephantine perspective, many years ago I wrote something..

All cannot if man does not.

Animals may not be able to and so man must assume he must lead the way towards values.

Whether after man doing so animals will show they can follow remains to be seen.

No two legged critter has ever said anyth

The ability to absorb the injustices of today in order to build a better tomorrow for all and that ability comes from centuries of suffering and learning but yet living.

To see big in the small and small in the big and both across the ocean of time.

Are you proud of me? If not, then i surrender and go look into the reflection of the lake tonight.

Hangzhou here i come...

善待暮年 (杨绛)

花開花謝,潮起潮落,
不經意間我們正走向人生的暮年。

從呱呱墜地到兩鬢染霜,
歲月的行囊裡装滿了酸甜苦辣。
接下來,
在夕陽的路上能走多遠,
取决於我們的體魄和心態。

在曾經的歲月裡,
每個人都會有大小不一的光環,
但這光環已是“過去式”。
當光環退去,
誰都是柴米油鹽,誰都是一介布衣。

“我們曾如此渴望命運的波瀾,
到最後才發現:
人生最曼妙的風景,
竟是内心的淡定與從容。

不要满懷焦灼期待子女常回家看看。
子女們有各自的生活和事業,
他們像永不停歇的陀螺一樣,
上有老下有小,
“老”是“夕陽”,
“小”是“朝陽”。
“朝陽”總比“夕陽”
更令人關注和憧憬,
這是動物繁衍生息的法則,
是規律,
誰也不能違背。
記住,
年輕人永遠比老年人忙。

人生,
夫妻也好,母女父子也罷,
不管是怎樣的水乳交融、
心心相繫,
每個人都是生命的獨立個體,
因此,
我們要學會在孤獨的時候给自己安慰,
在寂寞的時候给自己温暖。

老要有老的風骨,
老要有老的優雅,
正如春華秋實,
四季輪迴,各有風采。

暮年是美好生活的開始,
是一種從容、恬闊、
悠哉遊哉的状態。
願我們保持一顆寧静的心,
少些期盼、多些寬容,
寵辱不驚、去留無礙,
微笑向前,
善待暮年的自己。

I think it might be the firm but unconditional love/determination/perseverance dedicated to our family, our culture and our country...
