Someone asked the Dalai Lama what surprised him most. This was his response. “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 present or the future, he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
"This is a big lesson: No one is going to do it for you; you are in control of how you live every day.” Martha Stewart"
