Regrets Of The Dying…

… This is doing the rounds and is quite interesting in that it shows the extent of the limit of mankind’s imagination… here.

 

Now. Think about yours… here.

 

My favourite comment on the Guardian site?

 

Regret no 6: “I wish I had spent less time reading the endless girning of commenters on newspaper websites.“”

 

And of course, where would life be without Terry Pratchett’s ‘Death’…

 

YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES [before you can believe the big ones]. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING….TAKE THE UNIVERSE AND GRIND IT DOWN TO THE FINEST POWDER AND SIEVE IT THROUGH THE FINEST SIEVE AND THEN SHOW ME ONE ATOM OF JUSTICE, ONE MOLECULE OF MERCY. AND YET—AND YET YOU ACT LIKE THERE IS SOME IDEAL ORDER IN THE WORLD, AS IF THERE IS SOME…SOME RIGHTNESS IN THE UNIVERSE BY WHICH IT MAY BE JUDGED. ~Death
