De nombreux événements de la vie peuvent être comparés avec les mirages qui trompent toujours le voyageur dans le désert toujours fuyant. nous courons parfois après séduisante rêves attrayantes dans l'espoir de les atteindre, mais en vain. à un certain stade, nous découvrons que tous ceux qui étaient seulement nos délires .... les rêves, les gens et les promesses que nous avons couru après ne sont pas vraiment ce que nous pensions qu'ils soient. à ce stade, il est préférable de passer à autre chose, et ne pas penser à ces rêves une défaillance humaine, trompeuses, et les promesses non tenues. à mon avis, tout en reconnaissant les mirages illusoires dans le temps à droite est le plus important pour le voyageur - parce qu'elle est la première étape dans la direction du chemin clair, ce qui peut souvent conduire à l'oasis, le succès final. La vie est rien, mais de passer! La vie continue!
