When a person is not in a shape or in a state of good health or another member of the family is ill, we lose our good humour. We are not happy any longer. Money will not cure a person with terminal illness. Health together with love is the most precious gift that people have. That´s why we shouldn´t gamble with it or tempt our fate needlessly.
