    And yet within our time we live

    so many lives. Looking for something yesterday, my hand found a small container in one of my storage boxes. Pulling it out, and setting my eyes on the label, my blood turned cold. My pregnancy vitamins. I had to sit down. Never in my life was a more disastrous outcome...

    Too short in fact. And like a toilet-roll,

    it's thinning ever faster as the years go by. Was hoping that with a young toddler in the house, his madcap presence would rejuvenate me. But his hectic demands are escaping the toll - the brighter the star, the quicker it burns out! Listen to me, I'm sounding defeatist! It's a...

    I Have Seen It Cut Short Too Many Times

    In the past few years I have seen much too much death. I saw several people die during my time as a soldier, and even when they were enemies...I never grew accustomed to the waste of human life. Then I lost my parents, which was a personal tragedy in my life. I miss them more...

    The last breadth is the toughest one to take. And I am moving towards it.. Faster than i thought. It is also an opportunity. To remember your contribution to the society. Not everyone can be a Rushdie. But maybe i will reach someone..

    Life comes only once.

    What I believe is everything happens for a reason. in most cases, people become sad and they hurt themselves for a girl or a boy. Nobody knows how long they are gonna live. So people in this world must enjoy each and every moment. For example; If you have a breakup , move on...

    Life is so short. Time is

    so limited. That's what makes it so valuable. Time is life. It's worth more than gold...or oil. Unlimited demand. Only one single nonrenewable supply. The question on everyone's minds, though, is what to do with it, assuming, that is, that what we deliberately CHOOSE to do...

    Why can't we do something else in life?

    A man hasn't been feeling well,

    so he goes to his doctor for a complete checkup. Afterward, the doctor comes out with the results. "I'm afraid I have some very bad news," the doctor says. "You're dying, and you don't have much time left." "Oh, that's terrible!" says the man. "How long have I got?" "Ten," the...
