"In the Long Run we are All Dead" - JM Keynes

It's easy to say that death is part of ones life. Yet, when we saw our love ones die, it feels like, you have lost something precious. On one hand, you feel relieved because you know that person is now at peace.

I think if there is one word that cannot be explained thoroughly by economics, that word is "death". I remember one of the quotes of great economist Keynes: "in the long run we are all dead".

The word death reminds me that there are things in life that can not be explained; we just need to accept the reality. Have a wonderful day everyone.
