My account seems to be hacked by some of the moderators. This profile also got changed by somebody a few times. I migrated to Quora, an awesome Q & A web site. I feel very comfortable there.

comment Is there a saying like “Plum trees bloom most beautifully as they stand and overcome the cold severe winter.”?
@bib they don't have quite the same meaning. Now I think Pitarou's comment is the best answer: I don't think any of them quite describe the very Japanese sensibility of beauty in adversity.

@J.R. Personally quotes are also welcome. I've been wondering how I could tell somebody in English my favorite phrases if the phrases are not English. And wondered if there is a very close English expression to the sentence asked in the question.
