"When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like, “If you live each day as if it were your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me…

and since then, for the past 33 years I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself, “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I’m about to do today.” And whenever the answer has been, “no” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything: all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure… these things just fall away in the face of death… leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.

You are already naked; there is no reason not to follow your heart. "

It was a quote on a very popular No Fear t-shirt about 2 decades ago, which is where they most likely took it from.

I have a quote that I often think of if faced (as I often am) with a problem whose root cause isn't obvious. I don't now if it's Chris Carter (of X-Files fame) or if he was quoting a specific scientist but here it is:

"Nothing happens in contravention to nature, only in contravention to our understanding of it"
