Chinese Philosophy

Some Chinese philosophy on life...

When without money, keep pigs;
When have money, keep dogs.

When without money, eat wild vegetables at home ;
When have money, eat same wild vegetables in fine restaurant.

When without money, ride bicycle;
When have money, ride exercise machine.

When without money, wish to get married;
When have money, wish to get divorced.

When without money, wife becomes secretary;
When have money, secretary becomes wife.

When without money, act like rich man;
When with money, act like poor man.

Man, O Man, never tells the truth:

Says sharemarket is bad but keeps speculating;
Says money is evil but keeps accumulating.

Says women are trouble-makers but keeps desiring them;
Says high positions are lonely but keeps wanting them.

Says smoking & drinking is bad but keeps partaking;
Says heaven is good but refused to go.

In the past, woman gives man their virginity;
Now, woman gives man their newborn baby

In the rural area, chicken calls man awake;
In the cities, man calls for chickens.

In the past, famous actresses will not sell their bodies;
Now, actresses will sell their bodies to become famous

What is life about?

At age one, YOU are the top priority

At age ten, academic excellence is the top priority

At twenty, getting laid is the top priority

At thirty, a good career is top priority

At forty, keeping your body in shape is top priority

At fifty, beating others at mahjong is top priority

At sixty, keeping IT up is top priority

At seventy, remembering something is top priority

At eighty, moving around is top priority

At ninety, knowing directions is top priority

At 100, having your portrait on the wall is top priority!
