Life Is What Happens To You While You’re Busy Making Other Plans

There was an old wise cat and a small kitten in an alleyway. The old cat saw the kitten chasing its tail and asked:

“Why are you chasing your tail?”

To which the kitten replied:

“I’ve been attending cat philosophy school and I have learned that the most important thing for a cat is happiness, and that happiness is my tail. Therefore, I am chasing it: and when I catch it, I shall have happiness forever.”

Laughing, the wise old cat replied:

“My son, I wasn’t lucky enough to go to school, but as I’ve gone through life, I too have realised that the most important thing for a cat is happiness, and indeed that it is located in my tail.  The differece I’ve found though is that whenever I chase after it, it keeps running away from me, but when I go about my business and live my life, it just seems to follow after me wherever I go.”
