Keep a quiet heart, sit like a tortoise, walk sprightly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog.

Keep a quiet heart, sit like a tortoise, walk sprightly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog.

Quote from Time magazine interview with Li Ching-Yuen - the oldest man in the world.

    • lisa Says:

      and lie on our backs like dogs, and kind of squirm around in the sun like they do, not worrying that we should go inside and put the washing up away. dogs are so wise

  2. Poetic Universe Says:

    This was Li Ching Yuen’s response to how he got to be so old – 256 years !

  3. Susan Says:

    I like this man
    and his dog

  4. jacqui Says:

    this dog is just a stray they have only just met in this life for the first time..I like the way the dog has his paw on the persons foot and the person has his hand on the dogs head

  5. jacqui Says:

    p.s. i didn’t mean he is ‘just’ a stray , as in inconsequentail , just as in they are not owner and dog

  6. Truth of Light Says:

    His hypothetical and extremely long lifespan was never confirmed as truth. They are officially, just simple claims and that’s the truth.
    Some of those claims put him at 197 years of lifespan and some other put him above that, at 256 years of lifespan. They are just unproved claims and possible lies. Maybe they are truth, but no human being has ever reached the 150+++ years of real lifespan.
    However there is a difference between living your LIFE and simply existing at the face of reality. HUGE DIFFERENCE!!!
