with the eye of formlessness, signlessness;
it means transcending the appearance, the sign,
to touch the ultimate reality."

to undertake tasks that seem hopeless."

"It's a cruel portrait of us: 500 million sentient people
entrapped in the recent careless thoughts
of a Harvard sophomore."

Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance"
