Something to ponder on.

Fame or self;
Which matters more?
Self or wealth;
Which is more precious?
Gain or loss;
Which is more painful?

Extract from Tao Te Ching

These words left me pondering ... in this world it is all about striving to be ... when there is no need for we are Be ing. Self is more important.

gain and loss are the same, one person's loss is another's gain :)

does anything other than self really matter?

hi trinity, how are you dear,
Well its a good question and clever too..
Well wealth,self, or others..i will choose Self which will fulfill not only my self actualisation but also my commitment towards my friends and family..
"what others think of you is None of your business"..
So love yourself and also your sweet bloggers like i do..hope you are fine there and happy..take care..

Hi Trinity! How are you?
Like the new look.
Love the Tao Te Ching. Gain is more precious if it means enlightenment - but enlightenment comes only after pain and loss. Thought-provoking quote.
