That is a quote attributed to Ernest Hemmingway .
Some people spend their entire life without having a sense of humor .They may have a lenghty life but it certainly will not be an enjoyable one .
One of my closest friends was diagnosed in 2006 with pancreatic cancer .He did not stop "living ." He knew that his days were numbered but he made sure to try and enjoy his days even though he suffered greatly .He left this earth in 2009 but he truely lived life .
Last week another friend of mine died .He had been sick for the past several years but he too made sure to get the most out of his years .
There is a saying "live each day as though it were your last."
