The Irony Of Life

The Irony Of Life

Saturday 11:33 PM

The illusion of permanence is the greatest tragedy of life. Money does not buy happiness. Material things do not bring fulfilment. Looks do not last. Social status has no meaning. Fame is hollow. The irony of life is that most people spend all of their life chasing these things, but love is the only real thing in life.

Do what it is that ignites your soul. Love fearlessly. Live in the moment. Be happy. And make your mark on the universe. At the end of the day, we all leave this precious Earth. Nothing remains, except for the impact we make on our loved ones, our friends, our colleagues, our communities, our countries, and our world. The knowledge that we left this Earth somehow better off than how we found it is perhaps the immortality we all seek.

We are ONE.
