I first saw this (or something very much like it) on a poster in an admin’s office in Altoona. It struck a chord with me, and I went looking for it tonight. This isn’t the exact version I remember, and I can’t find attributions for it. But it’s a good reminder for me:

Life is not a journey to the grave

With the intention of

Arriving safely in a pretty

And well preserved body,

But rather to skid in broadside,

Thoroughly used up,

Totally worn out,

And loudly proclaiming,

WOW !!!! What a ride!
