the only thing that people can’t take away from you – your spirit, your soul, is what matters. It lasts long beyond anything tangible. Whatever is tangible can and will one day dissappear.
and yet, people spend the least amount of time on their spirit and soul, and the most amount of time on the tangibles. the tangibles make them feel complete, and without a healthy helping of these tangibles, their spirit is broken. the soul takes a beating with every acquisiton.
that’s why so many people, even nations, lack soul.
