The Dalai Lama was asked what most surprises him about humanity. His response:
“Man. Because he sacrifices his health 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 being he does not live in the present or future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
This may not pertain to all, but perhaps have meaning to many.
