Philosophically speaking,

I guess that everything worth saying
has already been said, and mostly unheard,
ignored or unread.
Saying (or writing) is, of course, not necessarily communicating,
and what seems really worth communicating cannot be said.

Ever had what you thought was "your last day"? It's truly inspiring.

"Death is not an event in life, but is the end of life. My death is not a part of my world or my experience. Effectively, the world comes to an end at the time of death. Wittgenstein remarks: "If we take eternity to mean not infinite temporal duration but timelessness, then eternal life belongs to those who live in the present. Our life has no end in just the way in which our visual field has no limits" (6.4311). Being immortal or having a soul that survives death solves nothing (6.4312): it just serves to extend the limits of our life and our world, but it does not help us to transcend them." -- Ludwig Wittgenstein 'Tractatus Logico-philosophicus'
