Live all you can as long as you can.
Humankind needs your full potential life.

 

You have probably heard "It is not how long you
live, but what you accomplish that matters." 

My response to that is: "If you accomplished

1x-good in 35 years, you could have accomplished
2x-good in 70 years - three
score and ten years -
as promised, according to the Good Book.

There is nobody for you to compare yourself - your life -
with but yourself.
Always there will be longer
and shorter livers than
yourself.
So spare yourself the exercise in futility.

The world is in need of all the good each person

can do.
So why not do all the good you can as long as ever you can?

Don't die too soon.
