WORDS TO LIVE BY
Somebody once asked God, what surprises him most about mankind
"They lose their health to make money, and then lose their money to restore their health.
By thinking anxiously about their future, they forget their present
They live as if they will never die, and die as if they have never lived"
First I was dying to finish high school and start college
Then I was dying to finish college and start working
Then I was dying to get married and have children
And then I was dying for my children to grow old enough so I could go back to work
But then I was dying to retire.
And now I am dying... and suddenly I realised,
All my life, I forgot to 'live'
