thoughts of a shattered mind
the freaks are the ones that see

諺 (Wise Words) of the moment:

「人間万事さいおうが馬」

"Humans - everything is Saiou's horse."

Meaning: All of humanity's affairs are like Saiou's horse; what at first appears to be good luck turns out to be bad luck, and vice a versa.
From a Chinese folk tale about a man named Sai. One day his horse ran away. His neighbours commiserated with him over his misfortune, but Sai said "How do you know this is not really good luck?" A few days later the horse returned, bringing another horse with it. His neighbours congratulated him on his good luck, the old man said "How do you know this is really good luck?" Some while later Sai's son, while riding the horse, falls and breaks his leg. This, in turn, was good fortune when all the men of the village are ordered to join the Emperor's army. Sai's son doesn't have to go since he has a broken leg.
