Aphorisms I

No Regrets1. Beauty will fade and passions will diminish, but two things are forever; love and death.

2. Death is nothing to fear; what dies within us as we live is far more terrifying.

3. Live lovingly and you will love life; that is the secret to living a life of happiness.

4. Never be satisfied with where and what you are; that is the secret to living a life of accomplishment.

5. People look without seeing, hear without listening, and touch without feeling; if only they could see how pointless their lives are!

6. Life ticks by mercilessly and it is better to live recognizing that your life is short — there are only so many tomorrows; this is the secret to living a life without regrets.

7. Regret is an invalidation of one’s own life and experiences. It is the first step towards emotional suicide.

8. The solution to all problems in life is simple: don’t do anything you will regret.
