What is that quote from the Buddha about its better to live one day in the Dhamma than a century without it?
Doing what we can to live a long and healthy life is good, but living our life with the Dhamma as our anchor and guide, is so much better.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
