There is a sentence in Buddhism, 'humans are born with nothing and pass away with nothing.' It means that we should not be greedy for things. However, it is not true. Humans are born with certain levels of truthfulness, wisdom, conscience, courage, etc. which were acquired in their past lives. And they die with changed levels of them through things in their present lives.
Humans live from the birth to the death. Someone says life is a blessing and someone says life is anguish. Why is life a blessing? It is because life is a chance that humans can make themselves better existences. Why is life anguish? It is because almost all the people live chasing after desires. Desires are endless. Unfulfilled desires give humans anguish.
