What is difficult for people of this world to attain is a state of wonder. There is wonder in the colors of mountains, the taste of water, the light of flowers, and the aura of women. Although the most eloquent cannot begin to describe it, those who respond with their hearts know it.
Yuan Hongdao (1573 – 1620)

世人所難得者唯趣。趣如山上之色,水中之味,花中之光,女中之態,雖善說者不能一語,唯會心者知之。
袁宏道 (1573-1620)
