Since birth we’ve begun a race against time. Each milestone brings us closer to an inevitable and imminent death. Ensure that when your life flashes before your eyes, it’s something you’re proud of.
Hurt, evil, growth, joy. The story might be dramatic, but we need not be.
As Shakespeare said, the world is a stage and we are merely players; so define your role, choose your character and play your part to the best of your ability.
Cheap acts entertain. Class acts inspire.
“…Remember that overacting can be counterproductive—it is another way of spending too much effort trying to attract attention. It is less what you do that matters, clearly, than how you do it—your gracefulness and imposing stillness on the social stage count for more than overdoing your part and moving around too much…” – Robert Greene, 48 Laws of Power
