Wisdom 智慧

The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered,

 “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

 当被问及在人道上有什么是最让他感到意外時,达赖喇嘛答道,

“人呀。因为人为了赚钱而牺牲自己的健康,然后他牺牲赚来的钱去恢复他的健康。 他因为焦虑未来而不能享受当下, 而因为如此,他没有活在当下或是将来。他活得好像永远不会死去,死时才发觉一生从没真正地活过。”
