From Paulo Coelho’s Book “Like A Flowing River” (story: My Funeral)
I know it’s not a topic anyone likes to think about, but I have a duty to my readers — to make them think about the important things in life.
And DEATH is possibly the most important thing. We are all walking towards death, but we never know when death will touch us and it is our duty, therefore, to look around us, to be grateful for each minute. But we should also be grateful to death, because it makes us think about the importance of each division we take, or fail to take; it makes us stop doing anything that keeps us stuck in the category of the ‘living dead’ and, instead, urges us to risk everything, to bet everything on those things we always dreamed of doing, because whether we like it or not, the angel of death is waiting for us.
