Blogging A to Z: D is for Death


Today is D – for the April Blogging A to Z challenge.

D is for Death
Yes , I know, it is a dark subject, but it happens to each of us, eventually.
Amy’s prompt asked : what are your feelings about death?

Yet, we really need to spend more time thinking of the dash – that hyphen between our birthdate and the date of our death. How many of us squeeze every drop of life out of our days?
Here are some quotes to consider:

The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time. Mark Twain

Make Most of the Dash between the date of birth and date of death (Read Linda Ellis’s poem “The Dash” here – especially noting the last two lines)

Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things. ~Robert Breault
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did. ~ Mark Twain

Don’t be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin. ~ Grace Hansen

It is not the years in your life but the life in your years that counts. ~ Adlai Stevenson
