Garden of Serenity

From A Chinese Garden of Serenity (1959), translated by Chao Tze-chiang:

Hearkening to the crying cranes under a frosty firmament or the crowing cocks on a snowy night, one can catch the pure spirit of heaven and earth. Beholding the flying birds in the clear sky or the playful fishes in the flowing water, one can understand the life-force in the universe.
