    “Placid as the peaceful waters of a deep pool, buoyant as an unfastened boat. Find no cause for complacency in life, but cultivate emptiness and drift.” – 《Fu NiaoFu》

    Busy makes people feel important. It feels good to be busy, and there is a connection to feeling accomplished or successful and wanting to share that with others. Everyone wants to be heard and appreciated. However, it might also enhance people deep down to confusing and tiring.
