A life well lived...

All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing. If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path. And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.
Yoda-talkin' passive sentences makes one wise not, nor contemplative. Focused on death for too long, you will forget to live. Why is that anyhow, to examine if something is right or wrong you have to bring up your deathbed? Just be real.
"HappyCow" is a very positive site.
Thantophobia / necrophobia - treatable conditions.
"Do you know what a pessimist is?" "A man who thinks everybody is as nasty as himself, and hates them for it."
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)
Irish dramatist & socialist
"The righteous man does not drive in the Left Lane, only stays put in the right lane fearing the wilderness of speed that lies on the Left; Stay right and preach!!!"
An optimist of the truest nature wakes up every morn to find the Left Lane uncrowded by the slow and weary.
All remember this holiday season the true reason for gathering, to celebrate speed of the left and the conservatism of the right Lanes. Choose a life and stick to it; "Don't make me pass you on the Right!!!"

Kindlizard - not driving slowly on the left is a great example of Johnny's quote on not being indifferent to others. Thanks!
