Received this picture as a forward today, yes it may strike a chord to many, but don't worry there are many people who are being wise and this won't apply to them at all....
My 2 cents were if one could successfully define what is life? then there is no purpose left for that person to live anymore as he knows it all and there is no meaning to life and he has become super human.
In this same context loved a quote and a tagline,
Dr. Salim Ali, the famous ornithologist, had said, “Man does not live by bread alone. Just look at the people who have no hobbies and spend all their time solely in earning a living. After fifty when they retire from official chair-warming, they don’t know what to do with all the time in their hands and just spend it watching the clock! If they cultivated a hobby like bird watching – it is very healthy because you have to be out of doors to watch birds – they would have lived longer to enjoy their pension.”
Read this at Ranganthittu Bird Sanctuary, close to Mysore - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranganthittu_Bird_Sanctuary
Loved the tagline of a company - The Fuller Life - 'One life. Do more'
Yes the forward can be viewed with various perspectives, optimism, pessimism well I choose the former.
Cheers to LIFE
