Life is precious because you can’t watch it again. I mean, you can believe in an afterlife if that makes you feel better. Doesn’t mean it’s true. But once you realize you’re not gonna be around forever, I think that’s what makes life so magical. One day you’ll eat your last meal, smell your last flower, hug your friend for the very last time. You might not know it’s the last time, so that’s why you should do everything you love with passion, you know? Treasure the few years you’ve got because that’s all there is.
People think that all those things I miss doing with Lisa, I could just do them anyway, and that would make me feel better. But they’re missing the point. I don’t miss doing things with Lisa, I miss doing nothing with Lisa. Do you know what I mean? Just sitting at home, wouldn’t even have to go out, or do anything, or even talk, you know, just sitting there, knowing she was there. Sometimes, I’d just look over at her.[to Sandy]
You never know what’s around the corner, do you? One minute you’re happy and safe and smug about it, the next minute, everything’s taken away from you.
There’s no advantage to being nice and thoughtful and caring and having integrity. It’s a disadvantage, if anything.
