Quote: Abandoning life

1 comment

“Each of us comes into life with fists closed, set for aggressiveness and acquisition. But when we abandon life our hands are open; there is nothing on earth that we need, nothing the soul can take with it.” – Archbishop Fulton Sheen

The goal is realizing sooner rather than later the inevitability of such abandonment…and then preparing for it.

Sounds rather Buddhist; the key to happiness is not to make Earthly attachments.
