A certain man went to see his physician. "What is wrong with me?" the sick man asked.
"You are dying, my friend," answered the doctor.
Trying not to cry, the man said, "I've been lying on my bed, waiting to get better."
"That's not going to happen. You are going to die."
"What can I do?"
"You can lie on your bed, waiting to die. Or you can get up and live."
