Thought for the day Arthur Anderson Art artnscience-(at)-yahoo.com
Good philosophy. Living each day passionately can't do anyone any harm...it's gotta be good in the end.
However, the emphasis on breath interpreted by 'Oldsters' could be translated as:
"It isn't the cough that carries you off. It's the coffin they carry you off in."
My grandfather used to always say that and he was a passionate guy. When he died at 86 years of age, his nurse said that as she was tucking in the covers at the end of the bed, he sat up grabbed her butt with his hand and fell back dead with a big smile on his face. Way to go Pop, not PC but passionate about life to the end.
Check out the web page I made about him and how he participated in the construction of the Panama Canal 86 years ago.
