Learning To Live With Yourself

This is a great scene from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, jump to 01:55:

The conversation is:

“What? You’ve seen it all, done it all. You survived. That’s the trick, isn’t it? To survive?”
“It’s not just about living forever, Jackie. The trick is living with yourself forever.”

Good words to live by.

235. Like a withered leaf are you now; death’s messengers await you. You stand on the eve of your departure, yet you have made no provision for your journey!

From the Dhammapada
