    Hi,

    How would you paraphrase "The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win you're still a rat"?

    I would paraphase it as "Living a happy and relaxed life does not go together with too much work and money greed."

    some help-

    I would read it: "If you participate in the hectic pursuit of success, you have sacrificed your life to such a pursuit, even if you are successful."
