How strange and foolish is Man

How strange and foolish is man. He loses his health in gaining wealth. Then, to regain health he wastes his wealth. He ruins his present while worrying about his future, but weeps in future by recalling his past. He lives as though death shall never come to him, but dies in a way as if he were never born.
-Imam Ali

“Life has three rules: Paradox, Humour, and Change. Paradox: Life is a mystery; don't waste your time trying to figure it out. Humour: Keep a sense of humour, especially about yourself. It is a strength beyond all measure. Change: Know that nothing ever stays the same.” --Way of the Peaceful Warrior

Imam Ali has not ever met me. ;)

The Chinaman who wrote "Way of the Peaceful Warrior" plagiarised my thinking. ;)
