Compassion is even more powerful than courage. Sure, with courage you can conquer a world – but only with compassion can you heal and build it.

I am fighting to stay alive not because I fear death, but because I love life.

You have to conquer every obstacle to realize the goal.

I have died at the ripe age of twenty.
Smile, for the world didn’t get a chance to disappoint me.

I have died at the mature age of ninety.
Smile, for my life was more than satisfying.

I have died suddenly-out of the blue.
Smile, for I didn’t have to fall ill before you.

I have died from a long illness.
Smile, for I had the chance to say goodbye.

I did not want to leave this Earth.
But smile, for I am still here among you.

Why are you crying?
Can you not see I am smiling?
