The famous phrase "I think, therefore I am" is originally in Latin as “Cogito, ergo sum,” by the great philosopher Descartes. ”
One of the most thoughtful questionnaires:
“Suddenly Yudhisthira saw a yaksha approaching him. The being sat in front of him and began firing questions rapidly at him.
What is bigger than the Earth? the yaksha asked. "A mother" replied Yudhisthira.
What is taller than the sky? "A father"
What is faster than the wind? "The mind , of course". Yudhisthira smiled.
What grows faster than hay? "Worry"
What is the greatest dharma in the world? queried the yaksha. "Compassion and conscience"
With who is friendship never-ending? "With good people" responded Yudhisthira patiently.
What is the secret to never feeling unhappy? "If one can control his or her mind, then that person will never feel sad."
The yaksha increased his pace now.
What is the greatest kind of wealth? "Education"
What is the greatest kind of profit? "Health"
What is the greatest kind of happiness? "Contentment" said Yudhisthira, ever prompt with his replies.
What is man's worst enemy? "Anger"
What disease will never have a cure? "Greed is incurable"
The yaksha smiled again. A last question my friend.
What is life's biggest irony?
"It is the desire to live eternally. Every day, we encounter people dying but we always think that death will never come to us.”
