For reasons not fully understood, on checking out the OT post over at World of Wallstreet today (one of my regular reads) an old Dalai Lama quote came to mind. So your humble scribe scuttled off to Google to get the quote right (well, the EngLang translation of the quote at least) and here it is:
“Man sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health. 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 like that.
