Life Goes On

"Is life always this hard or just when you’re a kid?"

"Always."

The ball hit me directly, a bump on the right eye, then the teeth gave the tongue a little bite due to the pressure. They both were bleeding. Damn painful. "Why me?" I asked myself, 2 days ago.

Innumerous people were lying behind me, and maybe more to come ahead of me, but, why me?

"Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get." But why should I ever have to get one?

"Life is like a box of chocolates. A cheap, thoughtless perfunctory gift that nobody ever asks for".

But I think I can change it, if I keep sticking with it, in one way or another.

"Yes. Fight and you may die. Run and you will live, at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that, for one chance to come back here as young men, and tell our enemies that they make take our lives, but they will never take our freedom?"

Different choices, different lives, but they still are lives, neither is superior to another, we all die naked, as we were born naked.

"We are doing nothing with our lives."

I would probably have done things better if I had the life experiences of age 40 or 50, knowing all the solutions to the whole bunch of messy around me, having a fulfilled life. But wouldn’t that be so boring? I can no longer smile back at my mistakes and rejoice, which can only be done during the process of life.

The joint of my little finger was severely injured today, again, it was a basketball. Why Me? That’s a question has no meaning at all, just like asking, what’s before the birth of the universe, cause "before" and "after"(time) can only exist in the universe itself. Why Me? It’s just me, cause I’m in the process of my own life. I could lose a book in an empty classroom, get robbed on the street, hit by a car… sort of things, but as long as I am living, life goes on, no matter what.

"Today is the first day of the rest of you life."

  1. hey…If I\’m in love with someone like you, I mean someone that has a similar background with you, or maybe even worse, do you think I understand your world now?

  2. anger.. it can make or break. well conscience always gets the better or me so no worries there… i like the last quote the best. tomorrow is always a new day. but who knows if you\’re going to live to see it right?  and if there is one phrase you must get out of your vocabulary my friend.. it is \’ why me\’ . or try thinking it when you\’re happy. why me. now we never question our happiness do we ???

  3. 天将降大任于斯人也,必先苦其心志,劳其筋骨,饿其体肤,空乏其身,行拂乱其所为,所以动心忍性,曾益其所不能……
    So, why not you?^&^
