In the long run...!

In probably the most strikingly simple, yet the truest statement which holds across all facets of everything, economist John Maynard Keynes puts across a statement -- "In the long run, we are all dead...!"

The first time I heard it, I wouldn't say life changed... views of it though changed...! I was, and still am pretty much a long-run guy! A believer in 'in-the-end' all shall be well! An 'optimist' who believes 'all's well that ends well...' and all the other phrases which basically deals with the 'long-run' thing and says it is for the good! Though, now I do feel the necessity to analyse with a certain amount of keen-ness the impact any action/ event would cause...

Long-run or short-term... who knows what is for the good?!
