"Be realistic. Why were you born in this world? You study, secure a job, join a mate, marriage results in children and sacrifice the whole life for the needs of a family. Now you have grown old and decrepit and suffering from some form of disease incurable. Ultimately remorse and repentance remaining. You die of it but in the hope of being reborn. Ignorance, delusion and craving bring you back for a life of what ever kind. Is this the life of yours and mine?"

All conditioned things are impermanent,
When one realises this with wisdom,
Then he is disgusted of sorrow,
This is the path to purity.

He who has reached the goal is fearless,
is devoid of craving, is passionless, 
has broken the thorns of existence, 
This body is his last.

-Gothama Buddha
