It was then that I realized I nearly lost my life due to carelessness. And that’s probably why I then chose to live my life well.

It is quite sad that we do not know what we have until we lose it. It is funny how a man suffers all his life with no help from family or friends. But his burial is a pricey ceremony of friends and enemies, giving a pep talk of his life on earth. What good is it now? I observe that the best deeds of a man are recited at his burial ceremony. Also, that much love is shown to a corpse or a man on his deathbed.

Tell me, what harm can this do? What harm can love do?
