Words of Wisdom

Written by


The Dalai Lama, on what surprises him most about humanity: ” Man . Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”

    I've never heard that quote. I like the way he dealt with the idea. I might have to re quote that.
