In the End, There Is Only Death

“The straight line will take you only to death”

— Jack Kerouac

A zigzag line will take you only to death too. This is the only certainty in your life: you are going to die. But, at least, a zigzag line will fill up your days with life.

Being scared, playing by the book, working hard. You die in the end.

Being bold, taking chances, working as hard as needed. You die in the end.

Life is a playground. Your days should not be a repetition of each other. Your years should not be a repetition of all those days. Your life should not be a dull, grey, wasted gift.

Go on adventures, explore the world. Experience everything you can. Be vulnerable, say “I love you”. Laugh, cry. Feel terrible pain. Feel immense happiness.

In the end, you will die. But, at least, you will have lived.
