Quote by Robert Herrick
The person lives twice who lives the first life well.
This quote implies that by living our lives to the fullest extent, making the most out of our experiences and choices, we are essentially living two lives in one. It suggests that a life well-lived is one that is filled with purpose, fulfillment, and significance. By seizing opportunities, embracing challenges, and embodying virtues, we can effectively expand the depth and richness of our existence, allowing us to experience a sense of transcendence and transform our single existence into a meaningful and abundant double life.
I do not write for this generation. I am writing for other ages. If this could read me, they would burn my books, the work of my whole life. On the other hand, the generation which interprets these writings will be an educated generation; they will understand me and say: 'Not all were asleep in the nighttime of our grandparents.'
