7One person worked long and hard to save a big fortune. And he decided to rest from the work and to live in luxury for his pleasure, which he could afford because of his wealth. Just when he made his decision, an angel of death came to him.

Being a very good sales person, he decided to buy some more time from the angel of death at any cost. He bargained for a long time but the angel was unmoved.

Desperate, the rich man made the last proposal to the angel:

- Give me just one hour of my life, so that I could admire the beauty of this earth for the last time and spend some time with family and friends whom I haven’t seen for a long time, and I will give you all of my wealth.

But the angel refused again.

Finally, the man asked if the angel could give him at least one minute so that he could
write a goodbye note. His wish was granted and he wrote that note. This is the note:
“Spend your time, which is given to you to live, right. I couldn’t buy even an hour of
life with all of my wealth. Listen to your heart and check if the things surrounding you
have a true value. Value every minute of your life.”
