Everything you’re involved in, everything you’re committed to, everything you know – all of it will come to an end.

When you understand this, can you really continue in your detached, distracted way? Or keep holding back because of your fear? Or mute your voice and your contribution until you are sure that others will like it, and like you?

Surely, when you know that everything will come to an end the only response is to throw yourself deeply into what you care for, with both fiery commitment and a fierce, unshakeable compassion towards yourself and everyone around you.

What else could life and work possibly be for?
