the dark night takes away its innocence and the despair crushes its dreams, yet it mercifully compensates life with a sacred wisdom that’s gleamed through pain, hardship, betrayal and deep disappointment. thus the dark melancholy of life ironically gives discernment to life’s enigma and depth to life’s experience. so if we incline our soul to learn, we would grow, but we must choose to learn. melancholy doesn’t automatically add to life’s meaning, nor sadness to life’s sagacity.

-Edmund Chan
