Riding the Waves

“Happiness, like everything else in this rhythmic realm, comes and goes in waves, and it’s good to savor it when the wave rises and, when the wave recedes, understand that another wave will come. Sometimes you ride the wave; sometimes you ride out the trough. A wave’s height is measured by its depth, anyway.”
—Carl Safina, The View From Lazy Point

Pretty picture. Nice quote too. I've heard it called more like "as high as the mountain as deep is the valley" or something like that.

It's a reminder that this, too, shall pass--whether it's happiness or unhappiness.
