Thoughts About Humanity

A question was recently posed to the Dalai Lama:
“What thing about humanity surprises you the most?”
The Dalai Lama’s answer was as follows :
"Man [or woman]
Because he 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, and as a result he does not live in the present or the future.
He lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
