AUG 4: Better

Better to spend your time at funerals than at parties.
    After all, everyone dies—
    so the living should take this to heart.

Sorrow is better than laughter,
    for sadness has a refining influence on us.

A wise person thinks a lot about death,
    while a fool thinks only about having a good time.

Ecclesiastes  7:2-4 (NLT)
