QOTD: Live to the point of tears

Thursday, March 22nd, 2007

“Live to the point of tears.”
— Albert Camus

I saw this quote on the wall in one of the classrooms I was in today. It pretty quickly sums up how I think you should approach life. No use holding back anything, no point having reservations. Give it everything you’ve got and be willing to take all the emotions, triumphs and disappointments that are inherent in doing so.

I decided this is the quote I’m going to have engraved on the next iPod I buy. My current iPod has Gandhi’s words along the same theme, as a reminder of how I want to live: “My life is my message.” My 4th generation iPod had, “For some moments in life, there are no words.” enscribed on the back.

Some people put funny quips. For me? I figure any device that’s going to hold my life’s soundtrack ought to bear a message about how I want the years to unfold.
