THE SECRET TO A LONG LIFE

The secret to living well and longer is:

eat half,

walk double,

laugh triple,

and love without measure.

-Tibetan proverb-

Although nobody has the right recipe for a long life, I agree with this Tibetan proverb.

In Greek mythology, the Fates, three ladies dressed in white, symbolized man’s fate. The first of them, Clotho, spun the thread of life on her spindle; the second one, Lachesis, measured its length by her rod; the third, called Atropos, cut the thread of life at her will. Nobody was able to oppose them. Even almighty Zeus was powerless against them; he was unable to change the destiny of a person even if he firmly wished it.

When our time comes, there is nothing to do to send away death.

In my opinion the best way to live well is to have faith. Faith is nearly synonymous with confidence. Confidence in yourself, in your neighbor, in God.
