What thing about humanity surprises you the most?

The Question:
“What thing about humanity surprises you the most?”

Sri. Dalai Lama:
His answer was as follows: “Man”

Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money
Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health
And then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn’t enjoy the present,
And as a result he doesn’t live in the present or the future
And he lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.
