Insight on Mankind 


 A wise man was asked, “What surprises you most about mankind?”

He answered,  “That they get bored of being children, are in a rush to grow up, and then long to be children again… 

That they lose their health to make money and then lose their money to restore their health… 

That by thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the present, such that they live neither for the present nor the future… 

That they live as if they will never die, and they die as if they had never lived.”

So… please… enjoy your youth. 
Don’t overwork yourself. 
Take time to care for and nurture your mind, body, and spirit. 
Find peace. Find love.
 Live in the here and now…appreciating the moment. 
Live knowing that your time here is limited. 
Make the most of what you have. 
And once you have done these things, you have the ability 
to die with peace and dignity.
