  1. A beautiful quote that can be interpreted in different ways. To me, it means, if we want to truly live life, then we need to dig way below the superficial layers that don’t mean anything.

      1. Yes, (and no): not all good things are easy to come by. 🙂

        I can’t imagine Aristotle saw much snow. I wonder what he would have said had he been Norwegian.


          1. “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes”, is a popular Norwegian saying (according to Winter Living in Norway). I think they must lean more towards the Stoics.

  2. I don’t know, maybe I’m too literal, but I’m not sure I buy this quote. Does it mean that to appreciate the suffering and pain of the homeless and the hungry that we need to be homeless and hungry? Or that we need to experience illness to appreciate health?

  3. As one who hasn’t really experienced either cold or snow, I think it means I need to be somewhere cold and snowy to appreciate a snowflake’s beauty. I’d love to see one one day, not just cut out a paper one.
