The Things I Like The Most



Out of a Million things I've been taught,
A Trillion things I found out,
If you'd ask me what I like the most,
I'd tell you: "The ones I can live without".

PS.
I'm not quite certain whether the above is original or not, yet, I didn't find any proof of the opposite. You are welcome to correct me if I'm mistaken.
