If I’ve learned anything from facing death, it is that life is not meant to be survived. Life is the greatest adventure there is. And why stop your adventuring when someone says the end may be near? The truth is, we never know when the end will actually come. None of us will avoid it forever. What’s the point in trying? Live fearlessly!
Death is a great tyrant;
no one can overthrow him.
Life is a priceless ruby;
no one can afford it.
Your past must die for your future to live.
When I put down Lance Armstrong’s book, I understood something profoundly. Edie, if you can move, you’re not sick. I decided right then and there that no matter what cancer did to me I would continue to move. Movement was what the physical body was designed to do; it was how it coped and functioned. Movement was vitality. It was life.
I would move. Always. No matter what. Until my last breath, I would move.
To know how glorious you are, it is only after your death.
Though we are terrorized by death, it’s not different from birth, it just happens
Death is the only destination we all shared
I walk to rid myself of the terror of cancer, and to overcome the fear of it coming back. The fear may never completely fade, but actively engaging life – whatever that may involve – reminds me of the joy each day can bring.
Hell was invented to scare to death the unruly human mind and bring it to obedience.
I Might never find that love my heart has always desired, but I know I will succeed before I die.
