Fudenji – Tempio Zen
Do not care for happiness
nor escape unhappiness

– G. Leopardi

I misread the quote and thought it read like this:

Do not care for happiness
nor escape happiness

Hm, I do like that better. The meaning gains a spark, a lift by removing the negation. It becomes instantly brighter. Don’t run after it, but don’t run away from it either. I think I’ll claim that:

Do not care for happiness
nor escape happiness
