    Few things.

    Didn’t the Greeks embrace their mortality and saw it as something to be celebrated and consequentially to cherish a limited life? “The Gods envy us for because we will pass at any age, every drip of wine tastes so much sweeter.”

    Didnt the Japanese instill the idea of choosing death in their Hagukare warrior code? Upon rising each samurai meditated for half an hour on how they would die and this was the fire to their ferocity during battle.

    Didn’t Marcus Aurelius talk about “pretend that you are already dead, now live.. live free of fear, anxiety, and shame.”?

    All three knew about women’s natures too

    How the hell did mainstream civilization lose all this archaic wisdom? Crikey

    Well.. cheers to a healthy diet, devastating workouts, good books, fun times with the women, and creating a legacy. Cheerio.

      This may be the best Internet comment I’ve ever read. Brief, wise and to the point.

    An excellent reminder.

    I once went through an experience that can only be described as death.

    Having lived through death, I can tell you the first thing I lost was a sense of urgency to use my time well before I died. Death is not a big deal.

    Instead, I learned to relax, enjoy the simple pleasures God gave us, and not to worry about trivial shit like how many women you bang or how much money you make or how many great books you write.

    Nothing in this life matters, so take the time to enjoy yourself, and help others. The most unique thing we have in this world are the relationships we have with others, so cherish them.

      I feel the same way after my most recent encounter with the reaper (nearly drowned, swam my way back to shore with nothing but the force of my will compelling my body to move beyond it’s limits).
