Health, Money, Love



Amazing, really!

Two completely different cultures saying exactly the same thing about life, sharing the same philosophy of life.

The first is Spanish and can be translated:

There are three things in life
Health, Money and Love
Anyone who has those three things
Can give thanks to God


The second is a Swahili (East Africa) poem by Shaaban Robert - see my September 26 post.

Translation:

Happiness in life consists in three things
Being blessed with Health and owning Property
But more than all that, being Loved by people


Of course there are slight differences in emphasis. For example, the African poet seems to stress love, specially in its social dimension, whereas, the Spanish verse seems to mean one-to-one love etc.
