How should one live life?
Could you answer that question
in one or two sentences?
Authors, Kathryn and Ross Petras of “Dance Now. Think Later” were watching David Letterman one evening. David Letterman had rocker guest Warren Zevon – who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of 55 years old. David asked Warren, what had he learned about life and death.
Warren simply replied, “Enjoy every sandwich.”
Kathryn and Ross Petras thought of this as such a light-hearted and refreshing thought to a complex question that in turn gave them an idea after much thought. They decided to compile a book of quotes written by philosophers, actors, scientist, educators, writers, and the list goes on.
They created “Dance Now. Think Later.” – 618 Rules to live by. Now, if you read my blog, you already know that I am a freak of nature when it comes to reading and writing quotes, even my own.
Starting this evening, I am going to write the following rule #1 and continue this daily as my new series, “The Big Picture” I may pluck out of order, or even add a couple at a time. You can never tell what I’m going to do from one day to the next. But in the meantime, let’s start, shall we?
The first and great commandment is:
Don’t let them scare you.
~ Elmer Davis ~ Writer
Now, back to the question in the very beginning. How would you answer it in one or two sentences, I’m curious? I would love to hear what your thoughts are, so please make sure you add them in the comment section of this post. I would love to be able to share them with other bloggers only if you allow me to.
Thank you for reading.
Take Care & God Bless,
