    Content?Content is a quality of primitive minds.

    The fighter and winner in life is never satisfied with what he has and always wants more.He climbs an endless ladder of progress.Today you win something but that`s not the end of it,you make a new,higher goal,you picture it,and you pursue it.Thats the mindset of the ruthless businessman,the ruthless athlete or the ruthless politician.Nothing is ever enough,there can always be more.

    "Content" are people who get some degree and work the same job until they die and nobody ever knows or will know their name not even their own grandchildren.

    Hey, I wanted to say that... Oh well, what's important is that the truth was said.
    To develop a healthy mind we must have a clean and healthy body to serve as a wessel. But, knowing the trend of the modern times (shifting fully away from manual labour) the mind is more important than the body.

    Not true. It helps, but it is not necessary. Body is just a biological machine. Your mind's attitude is all that counts. Think of all great people who were paralyzed, but achieved great things. The mind can transcend the body. Of course, deluded mind can't because it's hopelessly attached to the body.

    Agreed. Unfortunately Arcticwolf is not active in TheApricty since 2014 but i will do what he did, i will make threads about buddhism with the same entusiasm and dedication he had. I hope he came back soon. I hope people will pay more attention to these threads about Buddhism, this can help people improve their personality and became happier.
