“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” Gandhi
Many times we put things off because we feel there is not enough time. We’re too old to go back to school, too old to learn something new, to old for a new hobby; there may not be a tomorrow.
Other times we put things off thinking we have plenty of time. Why hurry to finish school when you have your whole life ahead of you? Why take on that book you want to write, or that painting you want to draw, or those words you wanted to tell someone, when you have your whole life ahead of you; there’s always tomorrow.
You are never to young to start enjoying life. You should tell that special someone how you really feel. You should start that project you’ve always thought about. You should live today as if it’s your last day. One day it will be and all of those things you’ve been putting off will remain undone.
You are never too old to learn. If we all stopped learning because we’re going to die someday, we’d all be idiots. As it is, there are too many idiots in this world. It is better to die tomorrow having a little more knowledge than to live another year as an ignorant idiot.
Knowledge helps you enjoy life more. Knowledge engages the mind, opens doors to the imagination. Life becomes a kaleidoscope of wonders, filled with people, places and experiences you never thought possible. The more knowledge you gain, the more fulfilling living becomes. As you live, your thirst for knowledge grows.
If you haven’t begun enjoying the moment, thinking there would be many more, you might as well be a mindless drone, whose only purpose is to work so others can enjoy life.
if you stop learning, thinking there were not enough moments, you’ll never appreciate the new wonders of the world. You’ll be known as that old person who lives in the past.
There are too many old idiots in this world. Don’t be another one. Forget about dying, and live like there’s no tomorrow and learn as if your life depended on it.
