A reply from the Dalai Lama

A question that was posed to the Dalai Lama:

“What thing about humanity surprises you the most?”

His answered: 

“Man”


Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money

Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate 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 the future

And he lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived
