Look at the time.
Have you ever watched a clock?
Try to stop it with the power of your thoughts.
Look at money. It comes and goes.
And if more remains than leaves you, you can be proud, but still you will leave it behind at the end of life.
Look at your children. The born and the unborn. They pass along to their children for centuries what you have taught them.
So choose wisely. Do you desire more time and money for yourself? Time does not obey you and money leaves you.
Look at your ancestors. They chose you.
