Stories & Reflections
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.”
“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?
