Most people lead the lives that circumstances have thrust upon them. But Wilson had boldly taken the course of his life into his own hands. At 35, he had quit his job to lead a pleasant life on an exotic island with just enough money to last for twenty five years. Once, fifteen years after he had been on the island, I happened to meet him and enquired about his financial situation. He said, “It will carry me on till I am sixty”. “But one cannot be sure of dying at sixty”, I said. “Well” he replied, “It depends on oneself, doesn’t it?”
