StumbleUpon.com: Discover the Best of the Web

http://xineann.stumbleupon.com/review/29778498/

In my young days I never
Tasted sorrow. I wanted
To become a famous poet.
I wanted to get ahead
So I pretended to be sad.
Now I am old and have known
The depths of every sorrow,
And I am content to loaf
And enjoy the clear Autumn.

— Hsin Ch’i Chi
(Translated by Kenneth Rexroth)

good night
