A friend of mine emailed lim peh the followings:
When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
You're the one who is smiling
And everyone around you is crying.
We never get what we want
We never want what we get
We never have what we like
We never like what we have
And still we live & love.
