My favorite words

“We are visitors on this planet.
We are here for ninety or one hundred years at the very most.
During the period, we must try to do something good, something useful, with our lives.
If you contribute to other people’s happiness, you will find the true goal, the true meaning of life”

The 14th Dalai Lama
