Start Living Before You Start Dying

Three Day Quote Challenge

I would like to thank Anne for forcing nominating me on this Three Day Quote Challenge, see her post here.

For today I have chosen this line by Portgas D. Ace, one of the characters in One Piece.


Unconsciously, we all don’t live for today. We always want to live for tomorrow when we don’t even know if tomorrow will come.

Kids want to grow up quickly not realizing they could only be kids once.

Adults work harder and harder each day to prepare for the future. They spend long hours at work while they don’t spend time with their families.

Rich men live most of their lives collecting riches. They’ll only stop once their hands do not have the strength to hold even just a single coin.

I’m not saying that we should stop working or stop preparing for our future. It’s just that we shouldn’t miss things that life has to offer today just because we are so busy preparing for tomorrow.



For this Challenge, the rules are:

  1.  Post three consecutive days.
  2.  You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3.  Challenge three different bloggers per day.

My day 1 nominees are:

  1. Branenosekai
  2. Ang Mamang Enhinyero
  3. Hammad Rais

Duh, I want to nominate more. Why only 3? Anyway, hope they’ll join the challenge.

  1. When do you think people die?
    When they are shot through the heart by a bullet of a pistol? NO.
    When they are ravage by an incurable disease? NO.
    When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom? NO.
    It is when they are FORGOTTEN.
