Work keeps us Alive 工作让我们活着 ...


We are all going to die, 
that's not really the problem;
the problem is 
how will we live our lifes until we die,
ironically, most of us 
will probably work until we die 
some happy about it, others not so

An american indian saying : "When you were born, you cried and people got happy. Live your life so that, when you die, people cry and you're happy".
Maybe this old woman doesn't know any other kind of life than working and working over.

A lovely photo! I look forward to working my entire life, as long as my health permits me to do so. I agree that work keeps us alive, keeps us fit and also keeps us young!

yeah, my work is easier compared to many other people's jobs, but i have to admit that i no longer enjoy my responsibilities. but i try not to be unhappy, since i have a lot of things to still be thankful for =)

Lieber Freund Wong, dieses eindrückliche Foto ist Wirklichkeit. Gefischt werden nicht Fische, die Nahrung und Leben bedeuten, sonder Müll, der letztendlich unsere Lebensgründlage ausslöscht.

Leben wir nun zum Sterben, oder werden wir eines Tages Sterben, um zu leben??? Das ist ein Frage, die ich mir oft stelle, denn sehr sehr viele Menschen, nur allzuviele! in unserer so hochgelobten Zivilisation leben ein leben in Überfluss, in Zerztörung, denn sie zerstören ihre eigene Lebensgrundlage und somit die der anderen Lebewesen und die NATUR! Angetriben von Profitgier, Machtgelüsten und Egoismus, nur für sich allein und so leben und zerstören sie tagtäglich...

Liebe Grüsse aus der Schweiz

if it wasn't for the social security programs in many countries, it would be true for everyone.

Wong another stunning capture that says so much; my heart goes out to this individual and I realize how blessed I am to live where I do.
