Sunday Inspiration: Wise Words

Erawan Waterfall, Kanchanaburi, Thailand

Jackie Chan responded to a journalist’s question about whether he is satisfied with his life with these wise words:

“You know, I once heard very wise words:

Your hard work is the dream of every unemployed person;

Your restless child is the dream of everyone without children;

Your small home is the dream of every homeless person;

Your little capital is the dream of every debtor;

Your poor health is the dream of every patient with an incurable disease;

Your peace, your peaceful sleep, your accessible food is the dream of everyone in a country at war.

You must appreciate everything you have. After all, no one knows what tomorrow will bring.”❤
