"'Tis impossible to know the end of this days business
before it comes.
But it's enough that the day will end, and then the end be known.
And if we meet again, then we'll smile.
And if not, then this parting was well made."
by Col. Rhodes, played by Gene Hackman
in the Movie "Uncommon Valor", 1983

“.. almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of
embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of
death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you
are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking
you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason
not to follow your heart.”
“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
