One morning, an unknown person asked a question to Emerson. 

“What is your age?”  

“360 years,” Emerson replied. 

“I am asking your real age?” unknown person asked him another time. 

“I have used my time six times. Actually speaking, I have lived for 60 years but I have used six times the actual time. That’s why I can say, I have lived for 360 years.” 

Unknown person was really shocked and he replied, “We try to earn six times in 60 years. In fact, we do not earn. And even, even if we earn, we spoil all for some good reasons.”
