We will see

A farmer had only one horse. One day, his horse ran away.

All the neighbors came by saying, “I’m so sorry. This is such bad news. You must be so upset.” The man just said, “We’ll see.”

A few days later, his horse came back with twenty wild horses. The man and his son corraled all 21 horses.

All the neighbors came by saying, “Congratulations! This is such good news. You must be so happy!” The man just said, “We’ll see.”

One of the wild horses kicked the man’s only son, breaking both his legs.

All the neighbors came by saying, “I’m so sorry. This is such bad news. You must be so upset.” The man just said, “We’ll see.”

The country went to war, and every able-bodied young man was drafted to fight. The war was terrible and killed every young man, but the farmer’s son was spared, since his broken legs prevented him from being drafted.

All the neighbors came by saying, “Congratulations! This is such good news. You must be so happy!” The man just said, “We’ll see.”

Yinelemeden Yenilemek – Renewing without reiterating

Eskiden sevdiklerimi şimdi sevmiyorum, eskiden sevmediklerimi şimdi de sevmiyorum. Ben eskiyle ilgili hiçbir şeyi sevmiyorum. Ben eskiyebilecek şeyleri de sevmiyorum. Ama eskileri de görmezden gelmiyorum. Onları yeniliyorum eskisinden daha yeni hala getiriyorum. Sevmeyi seven ama eskileri sevmeyen birisinin yapabileceği tek şey var yinemelemeden yenilenmek.

I don’t love  what or whom I used to love.  I don’t love what or whom I didn’t use to love as well. I don’t love all which is integrated and concerned with past.  I don’ love all which is able to age or become old as well. On the other hand I don’t shut one’s eyes to olds,  I have been renewing them, I have been making better than past form. A person who loves to love but not loves  old can only do one choice which is renewing  without reiterating.

-Where is the love ? Did you see it?

-No, I have been looking for it, me too!..
