balance sheet of life

I got this poem from a forwarded e-mail. Most probably it was written by an accountant ;-) There’s also another piece at the bottom, pretty interesting too.

Balance Sheet of Life

Our Birth is our Opening Balance!
Our Death is our Closing Balance!
Our Prejudiced Views are our Liabilities
Our Creative Ideas are our Assets

Heart is our Current Asset
Soul is our Fixed Asset
Brain is our Fixed Deposit
Thinking is our Current Account
Achievements are our Capital
Character & Morals, our Stock-in-Trade
Friends are our General Reserves
Values & Behavior are our Goodwill
Patience is our Interest Earned
Love is our Dividend
Children are our Bonus Issues
Education is Brands / Patents

Knowledge is our Investment
Experience is our Premium Account
The Aim is to Tally the Balance Sheet Accurately
The Goal is to get the Best Presented Accounts Award


This shows the level of your disposable income and commitments as you get older. Let's start saving some cash before hitting 40!

Here's the other piece.

Some Very Good and Very Bad Things

The most destructive habit...................Worry
The greatest joy.................................Giving
The greatest loss........Loss of self-respect

The most satisfying work................Helping others
The ugliest personality trait................Selfishness
The most endangered species.........Dedicated leaders
Our greatest natural resource.................Our youth

The greatest 'shot in the arm'...........Encouragement
The greatest problem to overcome................Fear
The most effective sleeping pill....... Peace of mind
The most crippling failure disease...............Excuses

The most powerful force in life.....................Love
The most dangerous act........A gossip
The world's most incredible computer.........The brain
The worst thing to be without......................Hope

The deadliest weapon........................The tongue
The two most power-filled words...............'I Can'
The greatest asset.............................Faith
The most worthless emotion.................Self-pity

The most beautiful attire.......................SMILE!
The most prized possession...............Integrity
The most powerful channel of communication.......Prayer
The most contagious spirit.......................Enthusiasm

Life ends; when you stop Dreaming,
Hope ends; when you stop Believing,
Love ends; when you stop Caring,
And Friendship ends; when you stop Sharing...!!!
