Does taking life seriously make you a better person?

Usama Hafeez | 9 years ago

Or does reading loads of books make you a better person? :)

Just a debate I recently had with a friend

In my opinion, being a better person is something totally different.
Taking life seriously is just a choice you make, has nothing to do with being a better person

reading a lot of books;)

So true!

I agree .. so u r saying that an ignorant person is as good as the one who is well informed?

what im saying is, if we dont set a single parameter like the standard of our religion, our description of a better person will differ.

I get it and our religion is even against ignorance :)

Ok, if he is careless about his surrounding and doesn't think what others think of him, thats his choice. If hes minding his own business, that doesn't in any way affect him being a good or bad person
Usama Hafeez | 9 years ago
If he is minding his own business then he is ignoring rest of the world , which might not be a quality of good person
Nabeha | 9 years ago
Oh I so love disagreeing with this one! See this is the definition of "Selfish" that I love! You can mind your own business without ignoring the rest of the world. You can be selfish AND a good person :)
Usama Hafeez | 9 years ago
That is what YOU think .. In reality, a selfish person is not considered good
Nabeha | 9 years ago
True, but we have a very narrow minded world. We believe everything we're taught without questioning it. So yes, in quotes, "Everyone knows selfish is bad".. Have a look at this: http://wisdomalacarte.net/blog/its-good-to-be-selfish/2011/02/

Well, i think i disagree with "Everyone takes it seriously". Though some people may be "faking" it, others can be at peace with whatever they do :)
Usama Hafeez | 9 years ago
Hmm. personal observation and not a generalised statement!
