Life lessons

Thus far the year 2020 has provided humanity with some exceptional, perchance grim, life refashioning lessons. While trying hard to overcome my disbelief, I am listing a few interesting thoughts of mine, partially or wholly fashioned in the language of Lin Yutang, the Chinese philosopher who wrote The Importance of Living: The Noble Art of Leaving Things Undone. If you can spend a perfectly useless spring, summer and the rains in a perfectly useless manner, then you have learned how to live. Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials. The busy man is never wise and the wise man is never busy. Sometimes it is more important to discover what one cannot do, than what one can do. Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence. There is so much to love and to admire in this life that it is an act of ingratitude not to be happy and content in this existence.  RUSI SORABJI Los Angeles, California, USA rustam@sorabji.org  ...
