Never Greener

“We spend most of our lives wishing we were somewhere else or someone else, or looking forward or harping back. Always thinking the grass is greener on the other side. But it never is. It’s still grass. Just a different patch of it, that’s all.”

「我們人生都花太多時間在「坐這山望那山」;如果自己能夠到那裡就好了、希望自己能成為某人就好了。又或者,我們都過份耽溺過去,渴望未來,卻忘記抱擁當下。

難道鄰家的草就份外青嗎?絕對不是!鄰家的草還只是草,只是另外一片草坪罷了。就這樣而已。」

– translation by impromptuz

不甘現狀乃是人之常情。但有如佛家思想所道,俗世的快樂並不永恆 (pleasure is always fleeting),但人類想追求更多的心態卻老早在我們的DNA內了。知足常樂又談何容易?
