He whose heart recognises the true beauty of a relationship, shall not choose to pluck a flower over nurturing the plant. A flower carries beauty for a short period, but a plant lives for a long time.
It is also important to keep this in mind when we build relationships with others. True relationships are built on love. There is happiness as long as there is love. But that love cannot be built on a materialistic beauty alone. It must go beyond that.

 

關係

認識關係真正之美的人,不會摘取鮮花而放棄培育一整株。花之美轉眼消逝,但一株花能長活。
當與他人建關係時,同樣要記牢這點。真正關係建基於愛。只要有愛就有幸福。然而愛不能單獨建在軀體之美。它必須超越這層次。
