A question was posed to the Dalai Lama:
“What is the thing about humanity that surprises you the most?”
His answer was as follows:
“Man” – Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn’t enjoy the present,
And as a result he doesn’t live in the present or the future.
And he lives as if he’s never going to die,
And then he dies having never really lived.”
