Wisdom of Buddha

Wisdom of Buddha


One day someone asked Buddha:

  • What surprises you most about mankind?

He answered :

Men lose their health to make money and, afterwords, spend this money to recover health.

While thinking too anxiously about the future, men forget the present to the point that they live neither the present nor the future.

They live as if they were never going to die and they die as if they had never lived.
