My grandfather told me something once and it has stuck with me ever since. He said " It's not what you do that matters in this life, but why you do it"
King, queens, rockstars, and painters all end up in the same place -- Dust in the wind.
To make sense of this journey we call life, I had to walk it out backwards in my mind. So, I started with death. It was through my contemplation of death that I found my meaning in life. I have deduced it down to these few simple things.
love deeply, live fully and regret nothing.
If I do that I can die a satisfied man. - RWD
