A few years ago, the St. Petersburg Times reported the story of a young man who was driving his Porsche to work when it caught fire.
He stood there watching it burn and was quoted as saying, “That car meant everything to me.”
Even if we make some allowance for youth and for the inexact use of language, the statement is still startling.
If your car means everything to you, you have a misplaced sense of values.
If your career, or your home, or your family, or your health means everything to you, you’ve forgotten something.
Even if life means everything to you, you’ve forgotten something.
