  • In order for you to get something in life, you have to give up something of equal value. You never completely win, nothing in life is free. In the end, you always end up paying for it in one way or another.

    As an example, when we work, we are compensated with money, but we lose hours of time that could be spent on ourselves and family.(Quick ex. lol)

  • I think it means that life is all about choices and paths chosen; although you may fear you will miss something if your choose a certain will receive something by taking the other path and vice versa. There is no win/lose -- just different life experiences.

  • I think it's kind of like be happy where you are. Just because you may have missed something that you wanted it may have turned out better in the end and when you get greedy you might miss what's right in front of you.
