    I don't know. I'm old, jaded and cynical, and I've always felt that education is the key to happiness and life. Still do.

    But, you know, money helps.... For if you don't have any, life can be pretty harsh. I've been there.

    Protruding foreheads are not part of our danish genome. If you should find these foreheads amongst our populace, I think they may be coming from Iceland or Norway. Probably Norway.
    Uwe, your reply made a strong impression on me, perhaps because I have had the same thought. I'm not old yet, but it is good to know that knowledge and vocation can be seen as more important than accumulating wealth, even if it makes you disappointed about some things in life.
    I think that knowledge, erudition and self-cultivation are infinitely more valuable than acquiring and spending wealth. If only our society would attribute due value to these virtues, perhaps we wouldn't take it so hard when we discover that we're not rich.
    Even if it is full of bitterness, harnessing of the wild inclinations of the mind always pays off in the end.

    How did you get through the hours of studying to be a doctor, Doc?
    My college and med school years were quite complicated...

    It takes a lot of commitment and more than once you have to make a decision on whether to party or study. Been there done that.

    However, now after looking at all of this the question is: Would I do it again with everything I know now? In my case the answerr is yes.

    In summary, it was worth it for me, even if I did not get rich...

    Regards,

    What are you writing your doctorate in, Fa Hui?

    I'm soon to be "master of chinese studies", but I'm going to spend a couple more years finishing an engineering degree that I abandoned back in 2008.

    Being a student in Denmark is really the good life

    Usually the latter.

    Doing pretty good. Some things in life pass me by while people around me have them, and other things pass the people around me by while I have them.
    Life's life. Time hurries on, but eternity waits.
