Sakyamuni asked disciples:"How long is a person's life?"
One said:"Seventy."
"Wrong." the Buddha answered.
"Fifty years?"
"No", he rejected it.
"Sixty."another disciple said.
And Sakyamuni said "Wrong" again.
"How long is a person's life?"They all asked.
"Life is but a breath."
Don't get mired in the worlds of yesterday and tomorrow. Instead, live the world of today. Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, experience the beautiful things around you at that moment.(From Zen Stories: The Staff and Shout of the Venerable Ones)
