As we grow older and wiser we realize 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 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.
Therefore . . . we should realize that when we have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, with whom we can chat, laugh, talk, sing, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth — that is true happiness!
