Unhappy Endings

C

Life is fragile and an end comes for us all. But whether that end is labeled as mysterious, ironic, tragic, coincidental or altogether unremarkable, is something for those that survive us to decide. The path of life through the wilderness of our choices can be both rocky and smooth, so look where you're going because others will remember where you've been.

Tonight's Quote:

“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”

— Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemens)
