The truth is . . . once you learn how to die, you learn how to live.

Once you realize you may die at any moment...no matter how old or young, you can truly live. Take advantage of every moment. Live as if each day is your last because it could be your last.

This aphorism relates to my life in the sense it became strikingly clear how true this is after the death of my husband two years ago.
