"...that we know, for certain, that life is bleak and dark...it is awkward and clumsy and void of all meaning. Therefore, it is up to us to make it beautiful and graceful. It is up to us to see its magic and wonder. And so, in the truest sense of understanding what is sublime... we know that we can, regardless of our plight, create our own meaning and create our own happiness."

Nong Youhui, a blue-eyed boy in China, stunned doctors with his ability to see in pitch black with eyes that glow in the dark; his ‘cat’s eyes’ makes him to read perfectly without any light and sees as clearly as most people do during the day, setting the world record for the first human who can see in the dark, according to World Record Academy
Doctors have studied Nong Youhui’s amazing eyesight since his dad took him to hospital in Dahua, southern China, concerned over his bright blue eyes.
The father said: “They told me he would grow out of it and that his eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did.”
The boy’s mother was interviewed briefly and seems quite proud of her “Starchild” son.
"I would rather be a failure on my own terms than a success on someone else’s. That’s a difficult statement to live up to, but then I’ve always believed the way you affect your audience is more important than how many of them there are."
