Did a bit of reading on Jackie Chan's life. He has overcome much.
Never thought of him as a philosopher but these quotes from him made me think he is a wise man. Be thankful for what you have.

"The difficult job you complain about is the dream of someone unemployed.
The mischievous child that tests your patience is the dream of the childless.
The small house that you think is too cramped is the dream of someone who is homeless.
The modest savings you worry over are the dream of those drowning in debt.
The health issues you consider burdensome are the dream of someone fighting a terminal illness.
The fact is that your mistake is not on display for the world to see is the dream of those counted by their past.
The peace of mind you have, the restful sleep you enjoy, the meal you easily access, are the dreams of those living in war torn regions.
We must cherish everything we have after all nobody knows what tomorrow might bring."
