A man asked Jaime Cohen: "Please tell me what's the funniest thing about people?"
Cohen replied: "They always think the other way around."
They rush to adulthood and then sigh over their lost childhood.
They lose health to get money, then they lose money to recover.
They think about the future with concern, forgetting the present moment, and thus they live neither the present nor the future.
They live as if they never wanted to die, and they die as if they never lived.
Paulo Coelho, "To Be Like a Flowing River"
