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.

comment Small Question Regarding Article the or a
I've already posted a new topic in the forum you linked to avoid further off-topic discussions. I'm willing to end this off-topic discussion as well. The best way to be helpful in my view is to simply provide an answer for the question but it seems to be really hard for some people for some reasons, especially for self-appointed English experts.
