Dalai Lama defines Humanity


The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him the 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; as a result 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."
