What did you learn from these cherry quotes?
The cherry is often attributed to the feeling of satisfaction and extra happiness. Still, in Japanese culture, both the cherry itself and the cherry blossom represent the fragility and beauty of life. Thus, it serves to remind us that life is overwhelmingly beautiful and good in a sense, but it is also sadly short.
There is so much life has to offer to us. We just need to grab it. Under the same tree or planet, we are essentially connected rather than strangers. Life is all about taking chances and seeing the beauty in everything. Try to see the good, the positive, and the beauty in life each day.
