The World In Reality and Art In Bangkok

The world In Reality

“Two tasks are considered difficult in this world,
Ascending to the sky, and even more difficult,
Asking others for help.

Two things are considered bitter in this world,
The taste of bitter herbs,
And even more bitter, poverty.

Two things are considered dangerous in the world,
The world itself, and even more dangerous,
The human mind.

Two things are considered thin in this world,
Ice in the spring, and even thinner, sympathy.

By knowing the difficult, surviving the bitter, detecting the dangerous and enduring the thin, one shall be able to deal with the world.”

(From “The world in reality” by Hong Yingming – Ming Dynasty China)

Above are images of art we saw in Bangkok Thailand.
