“With money you can buy a house, but not a home
With money you can buy a clock, but not time
With money you can buy a bed, but not sleep
With money you can buy a book, but not knowledge
With money you can buy a doctor, but not good health
With money you can buy a position, but not respect
With money you can buy blood, but not life
With money you can buy sex, but not love.”
Why does a price exist? The answer is obvious, to display the value of an item. But, the irony is things that does not have a price tag is more valuable than something that actually has one. I think that a price tag is just a limitation of a thing’s value. Which is why, some things are priceless and has no price tag. Many people tend to believe that if he/she has wealth, that person could do anything. Well, they are most definitely wrong beyond any parameters. There is just so many things that one needs to be content in their lives. For instance, the amazing days you spent in your childhood, the butterflies in your stomach on your first date, the happiness of meeting your old friends, graduating and witnessing the smile on your parents faces and many more are the little elements in life that create bigger memories. Just think what are you going to remember in your final days, a good cheese hamburger or the memories of our loved ones.
Money won’t satisfy your life, happiness does.
Smile! It’s a beautiful thing in every perspective. Have you ever smiled at anyone? Now don’t say no. Cause that would be absurd. Have you ever smiled at a stranger walking past you? Have you ever smiled at some one who just crossed your path? The tendency is that they would smile back. Everyday when I went to school. I smiled at almost everyone in the streets. They smiled back! When you smile, you release a positive energy. The universal fact is that positive attracts positive and it is a no brainer! In fact smiling is a universal language itself. It doesn’t have any barriers. Babies smile,young people smile, old people smile even animals smile! ( They do if you really look closely :p )
The other day when I had classes. I choose to use the public transport bus service. I got in and found my self a seat. The bus conductor asked me for my bus fare. He asked in a very ugly and unruly manner. He had a very straight face. He put his hand in front and waved his fingers to and fro asking for the bus fare. It was similar to the way when people fight and where they taunt the opposition asking for more. I was shocked when he asked for the money. I stayed calm and smiled at him. He smiled back and took my the money I gave him. I observed him as he went to the other passengers to collect their fares. To my astonishment as he was collected the fares he gave a smile to all his customers; and NO all the customers were not ladies! It was like chain reaction that kept going on and on. Then I realized smiling is contagious. It made the whole bus feel that its full of positive energy. And it all began with just one smile. I can definitely say that the travelers on the bus would have taken that positive energy and spread it in their workplace, school or where ever they went. So, you got the message guys? Don’t forget to smile. Where ever you go, always smile. You will never know, your smile could change somebody’s life. Maybe even save a life! So smile away people! Where there’s a smile, happiness is not far around the corner.

Did you know? If you had 300 billion brothers and sisters. You would still not be exactly the same as them. Neither, would they be exactly same as each other. Every human is born unique to this would. God is the main and only contributor to insert that individuality into that person. It’s sad to see that in today’s society respect towards individuality has ceased to exist. Today I mainly see people who just wants to fit in to society rather than stand out. Wheres individuality gone and how were imitators born ?
A quote that I came across while reading a book. “Imitating is suicide” It just doesn’t mean that you literally kill yourself but rather you kill you own individual personality. Be a lion not a buffalo. Yes, it’s funny but it has meaning. A lion wakes up everyday knowing that he must run faster than his prey or else he will starve. He hunts alone. He has his own way of life. Buffalo! He disappears to his heard. Do I need to explain more ?
What are you waiting for ? Bring out the great person within you! Remember this along the way, the greatest thinkers are the people who dare to be themself. There’s no other better feeling in the world than being yourself.
