Most schedulers, diaries, and notebooks in Korea covered with English quotations, usually about love, or inspirational messages. The imperfections of the writing tend to give these quotations a beautiful lyrical quality. I spent some time at my local Artbox store, writing down some of this "Konglish poetry," which I've included here.

What is life if we have no time to stand and stare No time to see and feel, in broad daylight, Streams full of stars, like skies at night

Love is here and there.

The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach our eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.

inventions and recipes, anger and sorrow, letters sent to not knowing... this is the real part, is yours. Write fast. ...write over them, paint over them. and let go.

Promise yourself to be strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

The stars in the sky, the fish in the sea, the animals on earth everything has many secrets.

A good day is expected to begin! Wishing you a garden full of happiness, today and Everyday!

Are you doing good lately? Open now, don't delay! This could be your lucky day, you know what I mean?

Look under your feet. The great opportunity is where you are. Every place is under the stars. Every place is the center of the universe.

Imagination is more important than knowledge Memories with you is not lost. I do not want to forget. However days and months may flow, the time spent with you does not fade. You are still alive there. A photograph can also shut up small temperature there. It is memory accumulation equipment which the human begins to forget various things produced.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Please always know that I love you more than anything else in the world. Being with you makes me feel so happy. Ever since I met you, things are looking pretty good.

The best and most beautiful thing in the world cannot be see nor touched but are feet with the heart. Happy the man, whose wish and care a few paternal acres bound, content to breathe his native air in his own ground. Whose herds with milk, whose fields with bread, whose flocks supply him with attire; whose trees in summer yield him shade in winter, fire blest, who can unconcernedly find hours, day and years slide soft away in health of body, peace of mind; quiet by day.

Happiness There is only one happiness in life, to love and to be loved. Time The busier you are, the more time you need to take time to do things right. Record We need to record words for our learning. Future Have you given any thought to your future? Let's do one thing at a time. Hero Everyone is necessarily the hero of his own life story.

Life is a beautiful journey. It is with great pleasure that I impart my inspirational stuffs. I desire nothing else but you'll be richly blessed and powerfully inspired by the thoughts and perspectives as journeyer in life.

The quiet water of a lake Love is like the ripples on a lake ever widening
