Satisfied Mind

Recently heard "Satisfied Mind" by Jeff Buckley. The following lines stuck out:

Money can’t buy back all your youth when you’re old
A friend when you’re lonely, or peace for your soul
The wealthiest person is a pauper at times
Compared to the man with a satisfied mind

I cannot agree more.. I just read a book called Geography Of Bliss. It's funny how a country who is significantly poorer than the average country can be so much happier than a country swimming in wealth...

Princess Banter, true! I think people in India or China or any other country are more cheerful than their American counterparts in face of adversity. I've lived in both India and US and this difference is stark. And, welcome back :)
