Rita Levi Montalcini – Life does not end with death.

0

Life does not end with death.
What is left of you is what you pass on to other people.
Immortality is not your body, which will die one day.
I don’t care about dying.
What matters is the message you leave to others.
That is immortality.

Gabriel García Márquez – Only God knows how much I loved you

0

He recognised her despite the uproar, through his tears of unrepeatable sorrow at dying without her, and he looked at her for the last and final time with eyes more luminous, more grief-stricken, more grateful than she had ever seen them in half a century of a shared life, and he managed to say to her with his last breath:
‘Only God knows how much I loved you’.

Bob Dylan – The times they are a-changin’

0

Come gather ’round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
Yoùll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin’
Then you better start swimmin’
Or yoùll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And therès no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don’t stand in the doorway
Don’t block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
Therès a battle outside
And it is ragin’.
It’ll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin’.

Come mothers and fathers ...

Marc Levy – Imagine there is a bank account ..

0

Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400.
It carries over no balance from day to day.
Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to used during the day.
What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank, it’s name is time.
Every morning, it credits you 86,400 seconds.
Every night it writes off at a lost, whatever of this you failed to invest to a good purpose.
It carries over no balance.
It allows no over draft.
Each day it opens a new account for you.
Each night it burns the remains of the day.
If you fail to use the day’s deposits, the loss is yours.
There is no drawing against “tomorrow”.
You must live in the present on today’s deposits.
Invest it so as to get from it the utmost in health, happiness, and health.
The clock is ...
