“The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival.”
ARISTOTLE

I contemplated about the passage of time standing there and savouring every moment. Many of us lead busier lives than we would like to, but it is not enough to simply slow down. We can get caught up so much in our own pursuits that we start seeing life more as a monotone schedule to keep than a journey to be cherished.

“He who knows what sweets and virtues are in the ground, the waters, the plants, the heavens, and how to come at these enchantments  is the rich and royal man.”

RALPH WALDO EMERSON
