If to enjoy even an enjoyable present we must have the assurance of a happy future, we are “crying for the moon.” We have no such assurance. The best predictions are still matters of probability rather than certainty, and to the best of our knowledge every one of us is going to suffer and die. If, then, we cannot live happily without an assured future, we are certainly not adapted to living in a finite world where, despite the best plans, accidents will happen, and where death comes at the end.Alan Watts
Death comes to us all, so it’s nothing worth being too afraid of. One day, it will become as effortless as breathing.
Until that day, planning too far ahead in the finite game of life is a fool’s errand. Milk every day you get for what it’s worth.
The fact that we never know the day we’ll die should riddle us with inspiration, not fear. Each day we get comes with a new opportunity to make the most of it.
