“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That's its balance.”

It does make sense, I mean in order to really find wisdom and true knowlege, you need to know what suffering feels like. Suffering is inevitable part of human experiences, but it's important to learn to balance your bad moods, othervise you're in trouble. :D I find it interesting how I'm attracted to complex and problematic situations and people, for example I live in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is a pretty fu*ked up country, but I'm attracted to it, cause I wanna solve it's problems. When I traveled to Scandinavia, I liked it but I think I couldn't live there cause scandinavian countrys don't have a lot of problems. I kind of feel more alive when I can relate to "dark" side of human nature.

come to the USA then....................*giggle*
