Wealth, Health and Morality - Which Is Most Important?
The following article is extracted from
the book "Wisdom on How to Live Life"
by Dr. Tommy S. W. Wong
Guru: Let me ask you a question. Wealth, health and morality, which is most important?
Tom: From the perspective of the rich and powerful, they’ll say wealth.
Guru: Can you bring wealth with you after the body is gone?
Guru: Can you bring health with you after the body is gone?
Guru: Can you bring morality with you after the body is gone?
Tom: This one, I’m not sure. Maybe, maybe not.
Guru: Okay, will morality be left somewhere after the body is gone?
Tom: You mean it could be attached to the name after the body is gone?
Guru: Very good. With good morality, you can leave a good name.
Tom: Forever and a day!
Guru: There’s a saying you know.
Tom: What is it?
Guru: If you lose your wealth, you lose nothing. If you lose your health, you lose something. If you lose your morality, you lose everything.
Tom: So morality is the most important.
Guru: Never trade your morality for wealth.
Tom: Yes, sir.
