Does The Cost Really Matter?

As we grow older, and hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a $300.00 or $30.00 watch – – – – –

they both tell the same time…

Whether we carry a $300 or $30.00 AMOUNT IN OUR wallet/handbag – the amount of money inside is the same;

Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $10 wine – the hangover is the same;

Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3000 sq. ft. –  loneliness is the same.You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.

Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down – you go down with it…

Therefore. I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with,  sing songs with,  talk about north-south-east-west

That is true happiness!!


  1. Don’t educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be Happy.  So when they grow up they will know the value of things not the price.
  2. Best words   … “Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food.”
  3. The One who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up he or she will find one reason to hold on.
  4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it.
  5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, You have to manage!

If you just want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone!  But if you want to Walk Far, Walk Together!


  1. Sunlight

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

  1. This is precious, Lynn. Your list is appropriate for all ages. I have so many mantras that I have come to hang onto through the years and even though they are not worded exactly as yours, the mean the same things and come from my heart. We have one life, we’ll waste it if we don’t live it like we own it. It’s a painful life to live it inside someone else’s skin. Thank you once again for sharing wisdom from your life experience.
