The poetry of the writer Goethe was widely praised, but some people did not buy it.
Once on a narrow path, Goethe met a critic who had never been accustomed to Goethe’s work. The critic said proudly: “I never give way to idiots.”
Goethe was not angry, but retreated to the side of the road and smiled, “I’m just the opposite.”
In the face of unpleasant things, a smile sometimes is the most powerful counterattack.
Behaving like a river, it is wise to bypass obstacles when we encounter obstacles. If we can’t bypass them, we can accumulate strength to flow high and over them.
