It's Not That Life Is So Short, It's That You're Dead For So Long.
It's not that life is so short, it's that you're dead for so long.
Life's too short, and so are you! -- Hoope
Life is not so short but that there is always time for courtesy.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)...
The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.
If you're so special, why aren't you dead?
So long as you are ready to die for humanity, the life of your country is immortal.
-- Giuseppe Mazzini...
Those that he loved so long and sees no more, Loved and still loves,--not dead, but gone before,-- He gathers round him.
-- Samuel Rogers (1763-1855) -- Human Life...
Live all you can; it's a mistake not to. It doesn't so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have your life.
If you haven't had that, what have you had? -- Henry Jame...
So, how long have you been on the edge?
I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead. -- Mark Twai
