Do You Want to Live Forever?

January 27, 2011

Daily Post

Today’s Daily Post topic is: Do you want to live forever?

My answer is a quick NO.

I am a firm believer when it is our time to go we should be allowed to go. No medical experiments, un-necessary treatments, living wills or waiting for tomorrow.

We don’t know if tomorrow will ever come. Do we?

I think we as humans have the compassion to grieve but the greed to not let go.

Some of my favorite quotes on the subject:


Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.

James Dean


Forever is composed of nows.

Emily Dickinson


We all die. The goal isn’t to live forever, the goal is to create something that will.

Chuck Palahniuk


We are one, after all, you and I. Together we suffer, together we exist, and forever will recreate each other.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.

Mohandas Gandhi
