Day #568:”Live your life in such a way that when you die the world cries while you rejoice”

When I was growing up, my father, translating a Sanskrit saying, shared something with me that I will never forget. He said, “Son, when you were born, you cried while the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a way that when you die the world cries while you rejoice.” We live in an age when we have forgotten what life is all about. We can easily put a person on the moon, yet we have trouble walking across the street to meet a new neighbor. We have technology to help us stay connected, yet in many ways we have never been less connected in the history of humankind. We know more than ever, yet we also know less, about what it means to be truly great—as a human being.
