the funny thing about human beings

what do you think is the human being's funniest characteristics? answer is, OUR CONTRADICTORINESS. we are such in a hurry to grow up, and then we long for our lost childhood. we make ourselves ill earning money, and then spend all our money on getting well again. we think so much about the future that we neglect the present, and thus experience neither the present nor the future. we live as if we were never going to die, and die like we had never lived. we may miss a lot of events in our lives because we opted to be busy with work. we forget to say HI to our friends, we forget to celebrate our birthday. because we are very focused in the present. then finally, when the realization sink in and the things we missed are haunting us, it is only when we realized our mistakes, short comings and yet we are still unsatisfied with what we only achieved.
