When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up first, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it's normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that's the source of your problems and stress. The cup adds no quality to the coffee in most cases and in some cases even hides what we drink.
What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups... and then began eyeing each other's cups.
Now consider this: Life is the coffee, and the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life, and the type of cup we have doesn't define, nor change the quality of life we live.
Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee."
Life is the coffee, not the cup...
