Life is confusing...

Nothing to write actually but i would like to share some thoughts about our life on earth..

LIFE.. Isn't it confusing..?? There is a phrase saying "Life comes with a guaranteed-death... " It's a package for every living thing in the world... Your first breath means you are waiting for your last breath, which remains mystery to all... if that so, why must we come to life in the first place knowing the certainty of death???

The only scary thing about it is the situation on our last breath... Don't you??

How and when i will die?? That's so scary to be thought of...

During our 'temporary-life' on earth, we ought to do everything that will satisfy us.. such as, education, wealth, friends, spouse, children, and many more... FOR WHAT??? YOU WILL DIE EVENTUALLY and you are aware that you can't bring those things with you when you die... Having all those things especially family will add even more sufferings to you for leaving your loved ones behind... *sob sob...

I wonder... how's life after death??? What will i feel??? How is the situation 'there'??? Will i still able to meet and see my family from 'there'??? Am i become ghost waiting for my final judgement??? Where will 'they' put me??? Do i still have feeling or emotion after death???? How about my unfinished business on earth??? How about my family/loved ones after i have gone???

Scary thought huh....

That's for us to ponder...

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.....

Here are some words of wisdom about LIFE...

A. Powell Davies:

Life is just a chance to grow a soul.

Abraham Lincoln:

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

Alan Bennett:

Life is rather like a tin of sardines - we're all of us looking for the key.

Albert Camus:

All men have a sweetness in their life. That is what helps them go on. It is towards that they turn when they feel too worn out.

Alice Walker:

Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn't matter. I'm not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn't make us better, then what on earth is it for.

Alice Walker:

Expect nothing, live frugally on surprise.

Amelia Burr:

Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.

Anais Nin:

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

Anais Nin:

People living deeply have no fear of death.

Anais Nin:

The personal life deeply lived always expands into truths beyond itself.

André Gide:

The most decisive actions of our life ... are most often unconsidered actions.

Anne Wilson Schaef:

Life is a process. We are a process. The universe is a process.

Baruch Spinoza:

What everyone wants from life is continuous and genuine happiness.

Ben Jonson:

A good life is a main argument.

Benjamin Disraeli:

Read no history: nothing but biography, for that is life without theory.

Benjamin Franklin:

Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that the stuff life is made of.

Bernice Johnson Reagon:

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they're supposed to help you discover who you are.

Brother David Steindl-Rast :

Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more.

Carl Sandburg:

Our lives are like a candle in the wind.

Carl Sandburg:

Life is like an onion: You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.

Charlotte Bronte:

Life is so constructed that an event does not, cannot, will not, match the expectation.


Life is nothing but a series of crosses for us mothers.

Corita Kent:

Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed.

Elbert Hubbard:

Life is just one damned thing after another.

Elbert Hubbard:

Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.

Ernest Becker:

[W]e now know that the human animal is characterized by two great fears that other animals are protected from: the fear of life and the fear of death... Heidegger brought these fears to the center of his existential philosophy. He argued that the basic anxiety of [humanity] is anxiety about being-in-the-world, as well as anxiety of being-in-the-world. That is, both fear of death and fear of life, of experience and individuation.

Ernest Becker:

I think that taking life seriously means something such as this: that whatever man does on this planet has to be done in the lived truth of the terror of creation, of the grotesque, of the rumble of panic underneath everything. Otherwise it is false. Whatever is achieved must be achieved with the full exercise of passion, of vision, of pain, of fear, and of sorrow. How do we know ... that our part of the meaning of the universe might not be a rhythm in sorrow?

F. Forrester Church:

Religion is the human response to being alive and having to die.

George Bernard Shaw:

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

George Eliot:

What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?

George Sand:

Life resembles a novel more often than novels resemble life.

George Santayana:

Life is not a spectacle or a feast; it is a predicament.


A useless life is an early death.

HH the Dalai Lama:

What is the meaning of life? To be happy and useful.

Harry Emerson Fosdick:

Nothing else matters much -- not wealth, nor learning, nor even health -- without this gift: the spiritual capacity to keep zest in living. This is the creed of creeds, the final deposit and distillation of all important faiths: that you should be able to believe in life.

Henry David Thoreau:

However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts.

Henry James:

Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.

Henry Van Dyke:

Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love, to work, to play, and to look up at the stars.

Isaac Asimov:

If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn't brood. I'd type a little faster.

James F. Bymes:

Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity. They seem to be more afraid of life than death

Jean-Paul Sartre:

Everything has been figured out, except how to live.

Joan Baez:

You don't get to choose how you're going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you're going to live. Now.

John Dewey:

Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living.

John Dewey:

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.

Joni Mitchell:

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all.

Marcus Aurelius:

Remember that no man loses any other life than this which he now lives, nor lives any other than this which he now loses.

Marcus Aurelius:

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.

Maria Mitchell:

Study as if you were going to live forever; live as if you were going to die tomorrow.

Marian Wright Edelman:

Service is what life is all about.

Marie Curie:

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.

Mark Twain:

What work I have done I have done because it has been play. If it had been work I shouldn't have done it. Who was it who said, "Blessed is the man who has found his work"? Whoever it was he had the right idea in his mind. Mark you, he says his work--not somebody else's work. The work that is really a man's own work is play and not work at all. Cursed is the man who has found some other man's work and cannot lose it. When we talk about the great workers of the world we really mean the great players of the world. The fellows who groan and sweat under the weary load of toil that they bear never can hope to do anything great. How can they when their souls are in a ferment of revolt against the employment of their hands and brains? The product of slavery, intellectual or physical, can never be great.

as far as i knew, after died there is no more feeling. Just like you are sleeping without dream. Thats why many people dare to suicide because its a real PEACEFUL!!! But people who kill them self, means they are the most coward persons on the earth.
