Profound Words.

A person asked Confucious :
“What surprises you most about mankind?”

Confucious answered :
They lose their health to make wealth and then lose their wealth to restore
their health. By thinking anxiously about the future, they forget the
present, such that they live neither for the present nor the future and they
live as if they will never die, and they die as if they had never lived…”
