"Gone..."

"You're dying right now. Right this minute.' He looked at his watch, said, 'Right this second,' then tapped it with his finger. 'See there? That second passed. It's gone. Not gonna come again. And while I'm talking to you, every second I'm talking, a second is passing. Gone. Count them up. Count them down. They're gone. Each one bringing you closer to your dying time."
- Billie Letts

"If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make,
who would you call and what would you say?  And why are you waiting?"
- Stephen Levine

  1. Futility. Trying to live as though each moment is your last is very different from making the most of your last days. Whatever that may be, do your best, enjoy it and savor each breathe along the way. To frantically be going from moment to moment awaiting the end is simply futility because it will come in its own due time.
