We know the truth, not only by the reason, but also by the heart.

The only thing which we experience as individual is life, because as long as we exist it is here. And when it goes away, we are no longer and not able to experience anything else.
When I was young and free and my imagination had no limits, I dreamed of changing the world. As I grew older and wiser, I discovered the world would not change, so I shortened my sights somewhat and decided to change only my country. But it, too, seemed immovable.
As I grew into my twilight years, in one last desperate attempt, I settled for changing only my family, those closest to me, but alas, they would have none of it.
And now, I suddenly realize: If I had only changed myself first, then by example I would have changed my family. From their inspiration and encouragement, I would then have been able to better my country, and who knows, I may have even changed the world.
Everything flows and nothing abides, everything gives way and nothing stays fixed
If you want to make people happy, add not to their riches but take away from their cravings.
