I have noticed a lot of inspirational quotes and messages on social media lately. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I feel there needs to be a counterpoint. So, in the interest of fairness to all the pessimists out there, I offer this:
"We are all going to die. Most of us will die leaving nothing of any real consequence. Many will die painful deaths and the lucky few will die quickly. The really lucky will die in their sleep. One thing is for sure, we are all going to die. If you have been 'successful' you will leave 'stuff' that people will fight over. If you have not been so successful, you will leave nothing, and people will say you were a looser. Soon people will stop saying anything about you at all. You will be forgotten."
I hope this makes all the pessimists feel better. The optimists don't deserve to have all the fun.
Still nothing. Bummer.
