“As a rule, man is a fool, When it's hot, he wants it cool; When it's cool, he wants it hot, Always wanting what is not…” As what the poem signifies, human by nature has infinite desires, that when once fail to acquire, will cause him great torment of a feeling of enmity and loss; in short Emptiness.  What is Emptiness?

I've come across the following:
1. You are reason enough for me to go on living.
2. He's enough reason to give up my freedom.

Actually I think I did not switch light on also before.. Hmmmm, I guess the city lights give some light even without snow. Oh and air was nice and…
