Nyoman Kresek, 70, is a former stone carver who lives in SeminyakWhat’s the greatest lesson life has taught you?
To be honest.

What’s most important?
Work. If we don’t work, we don’t eat.

What were your dreams as a child?
I didn’t have any. I just let things happen as they did.

What advice would you give the younger generations?
Be diligent and go to school so you can find a good job.

Are you worried about dying?
No, I’m not. Whatever happens, happens.

What do you think will happen to you after you die?
I will see darkness. I know about this because I have a book about heaven and hell.

When was the happiest time of your life?
When I got married. I got married twice.

And the worst?
One time when I had nothing to eat for three whole days.

What’s humanity all about?
Being useful to one another.

Why are there so many conflicts in the world?
Because people are selfish and overly emotional.

Is a peaceful world an impossible dream?
Not if people respected each other.

Are you disappointed with your life or happy at what’s happened?
Not at all. I had a tough time when I was young but things are fine now.

How much has luck played in your life?
I’ve only been lucky once, when I married for the second time.

Has life been a battle or relative plan sailing?
A battle.

How old do you feel?
I don’t feel old. I feel still young.

How do you regard the aging process?
I just let it happen.

Is one lifetime enough?
Yes, it’s enough. (BT/P)
