Good health is merely the slowest method by which you can die


So funny, because it is so true and has so much depth in this view.

Thanks mcc

There sure are faster methods. Even step-by-step descriptions on the web for those who don't want to wait.

You can't get a luggage rack on a hearst. The measure of a man's riches is the amount of things he can let go of.

therefore, the poor and destitute who have NOTHING to let go off are not worth your measure. Y'all want stories of a John D. Rockefeller giving away dimes to children? there are PLENTY of those stories.

If poor and feeling sad, then being poor is not helpful. But if poor and be at peace with it, then the life situation (being poor) can be seen as external gift that forces us to surrender (let go).

So for the poor people (including me), we have a choice to accept that gift. This way, we become worthy of weopposedeception's measure. Because we let go.
