Excellent quotes......

Monday, July 18, 2011

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered, "Man, Because he sacrifices his health in order 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 that he does not live in the the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived."

"Our lives take on their true meanings when we do our best at the ordinary things in life: working hard, being thankful, thinking good thoughts, doing the right thing, practicing self-reflection and self-discipline, refining our minds and elevating our character in everyday life."

I don't know the author of the second quote........if anyone can help I'd appreciate it!
