“Death isn’t sad. The sad thing is: most people don’t live at all.” Socrates
Memento Mori and Carpe Diem are two sides of the same coin. Without death, life loses its flavor of sweetness and bitterness. The contrast enhances the experience.
Consider that you woke up today as you have been issued a one-day contract with the Universe. Are you going to sit on the bench and bemoan the little bit of playing time that you get, or are you going out there and making the most of those couple of minutes to create a memory for when the game is done?
Go out and give it all you’ve got for your time in the game. Take that one shot, and maybe become immortalized for what you did in the chances you were given.
