" It is not length of life, but depth of life. " - Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882) . American Transcendentalist, Essayist, Poet . This is true wisdom. We cannot choose the amount of our alloted days, but we can choose in what manner we live the days that we are alloted. A short life well lived is better than a long life ill spent in my opinion. Will you leave your mark or your stain in the end ?
