Your epitaph / Seu epitáfio

Once someone asked me:
“What do you want to be your epitaph?” [ text on your tombstone]
I answered:” I will be cremated, but if I ever had an epitaph, it would be:
‘ Paulo Coelho died while he was alive.” ”

The person said “Why this epitaph? Everybody dies when he or she is alive.”
I said, “No, this is not true. If the same pattern is repeated over and over again, you are not alive anymore. To die alive is to take risks. To pay your price.”

Some epitaphs:

“Don’t Try” Charles Bukowski

The best is yet to come.” Frank Sinatra

“I had a lover’s quarrel with the world” Robert Frost

“Free at last. Free at last. Thank God Almighty I’m Free At Last.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

“A tomb now suffices him for whom the world was not enough” Alexander the Great

“Truth to your own spirit” Jim Morrison

SO, HERE IS MY QUESTION
What should be written in your tombstone?
Qual seria o seu epitáfio?

    Sag Deiner Angst dass sie sich irrt.
    Tell your fear that it is in error

    Dans la tirerie de mes pensées
    L’âme s’étendait en lui, recovrié, délaissé
    Et de mon propre corps, je me sens prisonier

    De la tristesse qui a assaillit mon coeur
    Tant de rage, d’angoisse et de rancoeur
    Devant cette impuissance qui fait notre malheur

    Mais pourtant, l’épé de l’espoir a fait choir sa lame
    Une goûte de lumière au millieux de mon âme
    Et aussitôt me vint une moins triste larme

    Moi, créatures de lumière dans ce monde
    Force éternelle qui vagabonde
    De son âme a fait fuir toute cette grande pénombre

    Have a dream? Run for it! Can not run? Go for it! Can not go to it? Crawl for it! If you can not crawl to it? Lie down and stay down in the direction of dreams!

    Есть мечта? Беги к ней! Не получается бежать? Иди к ней! Не получается идти к ней? Ползи к ней! Не можешь ползти к ней? Ляг и лежи в направлении мечты!!!

  19. Liliana says:

    Like the teardrops down the face
    They run and run somewhere…
    Who knows when they’ll fly up to the sky
    When everybody’s done?
    Or forever gone?…
    No,butterflies will fill up
    Every emptiness with fluttering purity…
    And they’ll breathe it deeply,gracefully
    Cramming hearts and eyes with dew of dreams and joy…

  20. Maryon says:

    Be not like a stream that brawls,
    loud, with shallow waterfalls,
    but in quiet self-control,
    link together sould and soul
