Hard-working people are busy. Thinking about abstract stuff like values, the meaning of (your) life and guiding principles is something that only people have the luxury to do, which are somehow shunning the responsibility that life throws at us (and trust fund babies). Who after all has time?
Taking our bodies for granted and ignoring existential questions is a luxury the terminally ill don’t have.
-John Green, author of The Fault is in our Stars
