His Holiness,The Dalai Lama was once asked what thing about humanity surprises him the most.
His reply was:
“Man, because he sacrifices his health to make money.
Then he sacrifices his money to regain his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future, that he doesn’t enjoy the present.
And as a result, he doesn’t live in the present or for the future.
And he lives as if he’s never going to die.
And then he dies having never really lived.”
