Before We Die

Before us great Death stands
Our fate held close within his quiet hands.
When with proud joy we lift Life’s red wine
To drink deep of the mystic shining cup
And ecstasy through all our being leaps—
Death bows his head and weeps.
by Rainer Maria Rilke

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
Abraham Lincoln

Happy Weekend ❤

  1. “I’m not afraid of my death; I just don’t want to be there when it happens” (Woody Allen)… 🙂

  2. “Only when you drink from the river of silence
    shall you indeed sing.
    And when you have reached the mountain top,
    then you shall begin to climb.
    And when the earth shall claim your limbs,
    then shall you truly dance.”
