Quotes for Today's Mood

[Quotes for Today's Mood]

I had been in a mood. I had been searching for a quote. I had been thinking that my mood, my view toward life's complications in general might be expressed by this:
odi et amo
quare id faciam fortasse requiris nescio
sed fieri sentio et excrucior

— Catullus

Then, I went to Daily Zen and saw this:
Don't be surprised,
Don't be startled;
All things will arrange themselves.
Don't cause a disturbance,
Don't exert pressure;
All things will clarify themselves.

— Huai-nan-tzu

I don't know why it made such a difference, but I feel ever so much better.
