"Only when you clearly realize that you will be dead one day, can you appreciate how wonderful life is." This is a quote from the book "Sophie's World". It was in Chinese, I translated the quote into English.

It reminds me of another quote:" There is no beauty without ugliness."

The hard truth is that most of us don't realize how wonderful something is until we lose it.
