[Understand yourself happy, that is true.] Man must stand the lie, stand the perfunctory, resist deception, forget it promises to let go of all, the last with a laugh to disguise the fallen tearsto remember that the more we hold back the tears, the more will become happy medicine.

Instead of the envy of others, not sure. Superficial envy, boring of the bandwagon, awkward to follow, it will only let yourself live in the shadow of others all day inside. Blind bandwagon, won't bring happiness, will only bring trouble; Don't bring happiness, will only bring pain. Each of us should know yourself and find their own position, and make their own way, live my own life. - chest have common heart, happy to nature.
