Yugen suggests that beyond what can be said but is not an allusion to another world. "To watch the sun sink behind a flower clad hill. To wander on in a huge forest without thought of return. To stand upon the shore and gaze after a boat that disappears behind distant islands. To contemplate the flight of wild geese seen and lost among the clouds.

Frankly I'm not impressed with this one and the very reason I am pinning it for is to illustrate my disgust. Just because many guys like one girl doesn't mean she is a whore and it doesn't mean she is worth any less than another girl. Nor does it mean that just because she isn't as reserved as other girls it is a bad thing or she has lower self respect or standards. And this isn't a psychology fact either.
