sorrow cancels sorrow

The sole project of a noble person is to “become as human as possible” according to Gide.

They say death is the great equalizer: but this is cold comfort to the living.


I don't want a funeral. For myself.


But I wouldn't mind a wake.


I like the idea of people using my death as an occasion to remind themselves to loosen up and party a bit more.


Whereas a funeral just seems like a waste of time.


If the dead guy in the casket could come back to life for just one more day, the last place he'd want to spend his extra day would be at somebody's funeral.


If so, why wish upon others what one wouldn't want for oneself?
