According to Socrates that knew one thing that he knew nothing, The life that is unexamined is not worth living. Ralph Waldo Emerson would definitely agree with him since All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. On the other hand, Albert Einstein who wasn’t much into experiments, believed that There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. Considering the darker elements of his personal life, it’s surprising that he also quoted saying that Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile. Victor Hugo had certainly put it in a more Romantic way when he wrote that The supreme happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved. But Life is very short and there’s no time for fighting and fussing my friends (The Beatles). Life is pure adventure and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art (Maya Angelou). For long you live and high you fly, for smiles you give and tears you cry, for all you touch and all you see, is all you life will ever be (Pink Floyd). Cause Life isn’t measured by the breaths you take but by the moments that take your breath away. Although it may be true that, as Jean de La Bruyère said, Life is a tragedy for those who feel, and a comedy for those who think, Confucius was probably right. Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. Just remember Forrest Gump folks... Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get. After all, Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of eighty and gradually approach eighteen (Mark Twain). Cause Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forwards (Johann Wolfgang von Goethe). Therefore my dear friends, if Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans (John Lennon), don’t let it slip right through your hands. Enjoy every single moment of your life as if it were your last!
devoted to my friends Dimitri & Andrea for their lifelong commitment
