Preparing to Live versus Living

We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. 
We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard 
to get a job, a car, a house, and so on.
But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, 
the only moment there is for us to be alive.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh 
Doesn't this make you want to smile?
