As quoted by my dad who i look up to more than anyone in the universe:
"I watched a tv show which interviewed ordinary people in Nepal. One of the people they spoke with was an old beggar sitting against a wall in a tiny village. They asked him about his life and he said, 'I have no home, my wife has died, and I don't know where my children are living. So, now I don't have anything left but happiness.'
When I heard that I thought, 'Now that guy is to be envied, not pitied. I hope I can grow up to be a wise as he is!'"
And i can only hope to learn from the wisdom passed on to me through my inspiring father.
