What Is Life?

What is life?
Seeking the shade when you are hot,
Moving closer to the fire when you are cold.
Eating when you are hungry,
Drinking when you are thirsty.
Making love when the passions stir,
Raising children,
Planting a garden.
Loving, laughing,
Fighting, crying.

Sleeping and waking,
Living and dying.
More than this I cannot say.

- from The Songs of Khazan Doshi
(approx. 1500 BCE)
