Got my blood test results back the other day but before I go over them some wise words from the Dali Lama when asked what surprised him about humanity.
“Man, because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health. And then he so anxious about the future 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 never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
Although not really connected I also love the story about the day the Dali Lama was visiting a function in a London hotel. A taxi arrived for him when it was time to leave and the taxi driver entered the large reception room and shouted, “Taxi for Mr Lama!, Taxi for Mr Lama!”
