Abstract Overview #2

Man spends half his time earning money,

and uses the other half to spend the money that he has earned.

不不不

How ironic?

  1. I get the point of this. But still, I wonder if there is another way. Would it be not spending time earning money or not spending time spending money. I’d money is removed from the equation in our lives today, time becomes money. It will be spent searching for all our needs, a more cumbersome ordeal such as existed in the period of trade by barter.
    I guess what is being suggested here is to use the money to make money. But in the “factory” where money makes money, the original ingredient was produced by time. Lots of time.
    I found your quote interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Ive always liked this quote from Dali Lama
    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; the result being that 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. I think people want too much stuff. Houses are bigger and junk piles upGarbage to deal with everywhere. Work less, eat less, wear less and find contentment in simplicity.

    1. Wow! I didn’t know that. Thats so wonderfully explained by Dalai Lama. I admire and is attracted by simplicity a lot. I remember a quote by Da Vinci, ‘Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication’. Connecting this quote to that, we get a better picture. Thank You for your information.
