We have to have hope - without hope we have nothing

It's easy to make a mess but so difficult to put things back into order. In 10 years we will be probably still talking about the same problems we are right now.

In ten years I'll be celebrating my retirement, if the rules of the system are not changed by then.

There is no way out: we have to take care of the resources, if not we will have a great destruction.

The main lesson is that our destiny is in our hands alone. The same way we can destroy the planet we can take care of it.

Ten years from now?
I`ll be celebrating LIFE !!!
Happiness? Happiness and money?
Let`s analyse what some philosophers think about it.

The ingredients of happiness are so simple that they can be counted on one hand. First of all, happiness must be shared. Selfishness is its enemy; to make another happy is to be happy one's self. It is quiet, seldom found for long in crowds, most easily won in moments of solitude and reflection. It comes from within, and rests most securely on simple goodness and clear conscience.
–William Ogden

Happiness is the way of travel–not a destination.
I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy.
– Dalai Lama

Be happy while you're living, for you're a long time dead.
– Scottish Proverb
Perfect happiness is the absence of the striving for happiness.
–Chuang Tsu

A great obstacle to happiness is to expect too much happiness.
–Bernard Fontanelle

It's not money that brings happiness, it's lots of money.
– Russian saying
