"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."
The statement above is one of Confucius’ magnificent sayings . As I spend my time analyzing it, I got the chance to understand it better. Well first I would have to define the maning of this saying before I conclude whether it is always true or not.
The saying tells us that everything has its own beauty. Starting from the smallest creatures to biggest ones. The only reason why there is a phrase “ugly” is beacause some people are blind. I don’t mean that they are blind literally, its just that their eyes are tightly close that’s why they don’t see the beauty there is in something or someone. Well sometimes people are not blind. They just have this hobby of labeling things and even people based on their standard of beauty. Let’s have a reality, it is true that some of us are doing those outrageous things but the good thing is that most of us are not. Now that I have finished analyzing it, I would strongly conclude that this saying would be always true in any situation given.
"To enjoy the flavor of life take big bites."
Now that wonderful saying is from Robert Heinlein, a science fiction writer. As I analyze his saying, I find it to be “true always”. I also got to ponder about the thought that life is full of choices. Every single decision we make, no matter how small it is, holds some degree of risk. It only depends on us whether we would like to remain in our comfort zone, or explore beyond it. What lies beyond our comfort zone is the life’s flavor. In order to taste it, we need to take the risk.
I know it’s a bit hazy so I’m going to give an example. A woman knows she is a good singer but her confidence in acting is zero. In order to know whether she has a talent in it, she needs to try to act first. The challenge is already there. Now it is up to her whether she would rather stay in her comfort zone or go beyond it. If she chose the later one, she would experience challenge, joy, adventure, success,...
