My feeling is that there is nothing in life but refraining from hurting others, and comforting those who are sad.
Dying seems less sad than having lived too little.
A sad thing in life is that sometimes you meet someone who means a lot to you only to find out in the end that it was never bound to be and you just have to let go.
In the game of life it’s a good idea to have a few early losses, which relieves you of the pressure of trying to maintain an undefeated season.
