Our lives are truly miserable. It>>>

Words of Wisdom for modern day living When we are in heaven – Our money is still in the bank. When we are alive – We don’t have enough money to spend. When we are gone – There is still a lot of money not spent. One tycoon in China passed away. His widow, with $1.9 billion in the bank, remarried his chauffeur. His chauffeur said, “All the while I thought I was working for my boss. Now I realise that my boss was all the time working for me !!! “ The cruel reality is: “It is more important to be strong and healthy than to have more wealth.” So we must strive to have a strong and healthy body, it doesn’t matter who is working for whom. A high-end hand phone – 70% of the functions are useless An expensive car – 70% of the>>>
On a positive note I’ve learned that:- I’ve learned that:- no matter what happens, how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that:- you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles four things: a rainy day, the elderly, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that:- regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.

“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book (Lady Chatterley, for instance), or you take a trip, or you talk with Richard, and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating.
The symptoms of hibernating are easily detectable: first, restlessness. The second symptom(when hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death): absence of pleasure.
That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this(or die like this) without knowing it.
They work in offices.
They drive a car.
They picnic with their families. They raise children.
And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death.”
~ Anais Nin French born American Author of novels and short stories, 1903-1977
