Is it the way you see hope in eyes or not 
that makes the eyes open
until diamonds die


"When I see a fellow abusing others, 
I think of a man with a basketful of water. 
As fast as he can, he runs with it home, 
But when he gets there, what's left in the basket?
When I see a man being abused by others, 
I think of the leek growing in the garden. 
Day after day men pull off the leaves, 
But the heart it was born with stays the same." 

- Han-shan (Cold Mountain)
