"We are all here on this planet, as it were, as tourists. None of us can live here forever. The longest we might live is a hundred years. So while we are here we should try to have a good heart and to make something positive and useful of our lives. Whether we live just a few years or a whole century, it would be truly regrettable and sad if we were to spend that time aggravating the problems that afflict other people, animals, and the environment. The most important thing is to be a good human being."
~His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Isn't he amazing? I know I've said I have immense admiration for this man before. He has the ability in just a few words to make me look at myself and my life and evaluate how I'm doing as a person. He makes me re-examine how I am currently defining success and helps keep me on the path to being a good human being.
I am so thankful for this.
