"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." - Oscar Wilde

Interpreted Meaning: Oscar Wilde hints that people are too concerned about the hustle and bustles of life that they forget to enjoy the pleasures in the world. This is what modern society has transformed people into; beings that are worried about rent, food, bills and how to improve their standard of living.

This same principle applies to life, in order to have balance and move move forward you must put an effort into what ever it is you do. Even though you appear to be the best at what you do at the moment, you can still be better at it.

Never be afraid to put in effort because it is the only way to maintain balance in life.
