spring is here again

„The rain has stopped, the clouds have drifted away, and the weather is clear again.“

—  Ryōkan Japanese Buddhist monk 1758 - 1831

Zen Poetics of Ryokan (2006)
Context: The rain has stopped, the clouds have drifted away, and the weather is clear again.

Abandon this fleeting world, abandon yourself,
Then the moon and flowers will guide you along the Way.

„The picture of the mind revives again:
While here I stand, not only with the sense
Of present pleasure, but with pleasing thoughts
That in this moment there is life and food
For future years.“

—  William Wordsworth, book Lyrical Ballads

Stanza 3.
Lyrical Ballads (1798–1800), Lines written a few miles above Tintern Abbey (1798)
Context: And now, with gleams of half-extinguished thought,
With many recognitions dim and faint,
And somewhat of a sad perplexity,
The picture of the mind revives again:
While here I stand, not only with the sense
Of present pleasure, but with pleasing thoughts
That in this moment there is life and food
For future years. And so I dare to hope,
Though changed, no doubt, from what I was when first
I came among these hills;

„I'll see you again,
Whenever spring breaks through again.“

—  Noel Coward English playwright, composer, director, actor and singer 1899 - 1973

„Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind or change with the weather.“

—  John D. MacDonald writer from the United States 1916 - 1986

Travis McGee series, The Turquoise Lament (1973)
Context: Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won't cheat, then you know he never will. Integrity is not a search for the rewards of integrity. Maybe all you ever get for it is the largest kick in the ass the world can provide. It is not supposed to be a productive asset. Crime pays a lot better. I can bend my own rules way, way over, but there is a place where I finally stop bending them. I can recognize the feeling. I've been there a lot of times.
From now on, Lawton Hisp was not going to have a very nice life. They might never come after him, but it just wasn't going to be very joyous from now on.
Happy New Year, Mister Hisp.
