Quality of life means different things to different people. However, no matter what, the choices we make determine quality of life. For example, you could have trillions of dollars in bank accounts, investments, and other possessions, but would that make you truly happy? I do not believe so. I do not mean to say that being rich is a bad thing. However, in the words found in Acts 20:35, "In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"

Not everyone can afford to make monetary donations. However, everyone can afford to make time to minister to the sick, volunteer at animal shelters, or volunteer at other non-profit organizations. In Buddha's words, what's important is to "not indulge in charitable acts for your own benefit. Love them for the happiness they bring to others."

It's all about work and no play... NOT! It's important to live, love, and laugh. In the words of Abraham Lincoln, "in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years." Even King Solomon recognized in Ecclesiastes 3:4, there's "a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance."

Above all I believe quality of life comes from respect for others. I believe we all have unique qualities and flaws, as well as special personal values and beliefs. As long as we are not hurting others in any manner, we need to live and let live. In the words of the Mexican President, Benito Juarez, "Respect for the rights of others means peace."
