People die all the time. Life is a lot more fragile than we think

People die all the time. Life is a lot more fragile than we think. So you should treat others in a way that leaves no regrets. Fairly, and if possible, sincerely. It’s too easy not to make the effort, then weep and wring your hands after the person dies.

I used to think the years would go by in order, that you get older one year at a time. But it’s not like that. It happens overnight.

My peak? Would I even have one? I hardly had anything you could call a life. A few ripples. some rises and falls. But that’s it. Almost nothing. Nothing born of nothing. I’d loved and been loved, but I had nothing to show. It was a singularly plain, featureless landscape. I felt like I was in a video game. A surrogate Pacman, crunching blindly through a labyrinth of dotted lines. The only certainty is my death.

Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past is real

Long before morning I knew that what I was seeking to discover was a thing I’d always known. That all courage was a form of constancy. That it is always himself that the coward abandoned first. After this all other betrayals come easily. He said that those who have endured some misfortune will always be set apart but that it is just that misfortune which is their gift and which is their strength.

You can’t take the past back, the ‘scars’ will be permanent. When horrible things happen, the scars or consequences make sure we never forget them. We need to be mindful of the consequences of our actions.
