Excerpts from the book:
"Our bucket, the alchemist fills,
Two glasses, our choice it seems"
This means God gives us happiness and sorrows, and we have to option to drink either of them in the beginning of our life and the other one at the end of our life. At least we can try about the things on which we have control.
"Whatever seems easy, may not be so,
Whatever seems difficult, may not be so."
