We humans are so careless. We only realize how beautiful life is when we chance upon death. But few of us are actually able to face death. The worst ones know nothing of life ‘til they die.
Be splendid. Rebel against life at any age. You were a slave to your own life. Now you will become its master.
I’m telling you, it’s our human duty to enjoy life. Wasting it, you desecrate a great gift. We’ve got to be greedy about living. We learned that greed is a vice, but that’s old. Greed is a virtue. Especially this greediness for life.
Go and reclaim the life you have wasted.”—Akira Kurosawa (via johannal) (via quote-book)
