Quotes

It’s not the number of breaths…it’s what takes your breath away

If you had 10 minutes left to live, how would you design that time? With family/friends? Seeking thrills? Why? Now try varying this length of time.

It is so easy to exist instead of live. Unless you know there is a clock ticking. – Anna Quindlen – A Short Guide to a Happy Life

“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.” — Abraham Lincoln
