Give Before You Are Gone

Give before you are gone. You don’t have a choice. If you don’t use what is yours, you will lose it, it will anyway be snatched away. Open your eyes and realize that you come with nothing and you will go with nothing. Nothing belongs to you. Whatever you keep, others will sweep. At the end, nothing is ours. Therefore, the wise men have said, ‘Put it in your head, that you can’t give anything after your dead. It will all be gone. Rather, give as you live so that the world will cry when you die. Spend before your end.’ This is the wise way to live. Give before you are gone. Everybody has to go, such is the show. Nothing is ours. Let us learn not to let others burn what we earn. Therefore, let us spend before our end. Let us give as we live.
