The autumn leaves are falling like rain. Although my neighbors are all barbarians and you, you are a thousand miles away, there are always two cups at my table.

T’ang Dynasty poem

Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn't clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Miracle

If you click on the title of this post, you'll be directed to a website where you can one more time watch Kurt Russell's protrayal of Herb Brooks giving the famous locker room speech from the movie Miracle.

Here is the text:

Great moments are born from great opportunity.And that's what you have here tonight, boys.
That's what you've earned here, tonight.
One game.

If we played 'em ten times, they might win nine.
But not this game. Not tonight.
Tonight, we skate with 'em.

Tonight, we stay with 'em, and we shut them down because we can!Tonight, we are the greatest hockey team in the world.
You were born to be hockey players -- every one of ya.
And you were meant to be here tonight.
This is your time.
Their time -- is done. It's over.

I'm sick and tired of hearin' about what a great hockey team the Soviets have.Screw 'em!
This is your time!!

Now go out there and take it!
