Unless we recall death, we won’t be able to abandon our attachment for this life. And if we fail to do this, we will become pleased when we gain something of material value and upset when we don’t. We will also react in this same inappropriate way toward well-being and suffering, fame and disrepute, and praise and scorn — that is, we will come under the influence of the eight worldly concerns.

— Pabongka Rinpoche
