What is important

Fame or integrity: which is more important?
Money or happiness: which is more valuable?
Success or failure: which is more destructive?
If you look to others for fulfillment,
you will never truly be fulfilled.
If your happiness depends on money,
you will never be happy with yourself.
Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize that nothing is lacking,
the whole world belongs to you!

– Lao Tzu, 604 BC – 531 BC

  1. So insightful! Everyday I try to remind myself that what I have right now is perfect and that life is good. It’s easy to get caught up on the competition of material things, but that’s not where true happiness lies.
