Who is right? Who is wrong?

Sadness, Sorrow, Suffering, Sacrifice, Suicide... Are all of these the correct path in life? Jesus was murdered, and Buddha preferred to live in economical poverty. Epicurus said "Do you want to be rich? Don't put too much effort in increasing your wealth. Instead, try to reduce your greed", but isn't improvement of our world a greedy goal? As everything, it depends on what Improvement is.

We human beings are emotional machines that work in the way determined by their own needs. The sad part is that the harder to satisfy the need, the greater the desire of it.

Making conscious choices is always difficult. Playing a lottery is much easier... Well, I can control many aspects of my future, but not everything, like how long I will live. So, is it wise to ignore that uncertainty and keep living? Maybe that's true, but I don't like it.

The ten commandments of the Holy Bible should be taken as the Ten Greatest Advices for Life. Why? Because what is bad today can be useful tomorrow.

Aristotle said that "fear is caused by whatever we feel has great power of destroying or of harming us in ways that tend to cause us great pain", be it physical, emotional or intellectual pain.

Yin Yang. Nothing is neither 100% good nor bad. Seek balance, forever!
