Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. For me the future is very important but I believe that for me and for the whole world although there are sometimes that we do not think about it, due to circumstances.

    Right now, what we have to do is to study like this, we will look for our future because if we study and get good grades later we can do what we want, like getting into a university, studying something we like and thus having a job with a good salary. and to have a good future.
