What is the most surprising thing about mankind?

That they get bored with childhood,
They grow up, and then long to be children again.
That they lose their health to make money,
and then lose their money to restore their health.
That they worry about their future that they forget the present,
Such that they live in neither the present nor the future.
That they live a though they will never die,
and die as they have never lived.

Then what are some of life's lessons?

To learn that they cannot make anyone love them,
All that one can do is let himself be loved.
To learn that it is not good to compare oneself to others.
To learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.
To learn that it only takes a few seconds to open profound wounds in those they love,
And it can take many years to heal them.
To learn that a rich person is not one that has the most,
But is one that needs the least.
To learn that there are people who love them dearly,
But they do not yet know how to express or show their feelings.
To learn that two people can look at the same thing,
And see it differently.
To learn that it is not enough that they forgive one another,
But that they must also forgive themselves.

And also that G-d is always present.
