  •  The one that always has stuck with me from early (3+ / 0-)

    on is:

    "The memories of a man in his old age
    Are the deeds of a man in his prime.
    You shuffle in gloom of the sickroom
    And talk to yourself as you die.

    Life is a short, warm moment
    And death is a long cold rest.
    You get your chance to try in the twinkling of an eye:
    Eighty years, with luck, or even less.
    "

    That song always stuck with me as a reminder, a warning even, that when the end is near, you will regret what you didn't do.

    And it doesn't maken things pretty, but it gives you the time to be beautiful.

    Vote Democrat! Because drinking piss is better than eating shit...
