Philosophy 101 ...

As we grow older, and hence wiser (wisdom), we very slowly realize that whether we wear a $300 or $30 watch - - - they both tell the same time.
Whether we carry a $300 or $30 wallet/handbag - - - the amount of money inside is the same.
Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $30 or $3 wine - - - the hangover is the same.
Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3,000 or 30,000 sq. ft. - - -the loneliness (so true) is the same.
And we realize our true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.
Whether we fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down - - - we go down with it.
Whether we fly first or economy class, if the plane reaches its destination - - - everyone arrives at the same time.

Six Undeniable Facts of Life ...
1. Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy, so when they grow up they will know the value of material things, not the price.
2. Best wise words: "Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food."
3. The one who truly loves you will never leave you because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find one reason to hold on.
4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few folks really understand that.
5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage.
6. If you just want to walk fast, walk alone; but, if you want to walk far, walk together.
Six Best Doctors in the World...
1. Sunlight
2. Rest
3. Exercise
4. Diet
5. Self Confidence
6. Friends

Finally: The nicest place to be is in someone's thoughts. The safest place to be is in someone's prayers, and the very best place to be is.... in the hands of G-d.
