Relative

All things are relative. What is cold to one man may be warm to another. One may look at something and describe it as beautiful, another may describe the same thing as ugly. What is pleasant now may not be pleasant in an hour. A hot shower may feel good after being outside in the cold for a while, but after some time passes, the hot shower no longer feels as good as it did and we want to get out of it. Understanding the transitory nature of things and feelings,the ebb and flow, is to be of great wisdom.
