Great quote!

Great quote from a marathon runner

"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive 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!"

haha beautiful


"arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body"

That wasnt an option for me by about 18 unfortunately.

yflives - I doubt many HS counselors would be advising fucking your body up in the pursuit of enjoyment of life. I thought this was a good quote to counter the 'why would you put your body through that' type of question that MMA practicioners receive all the time.


It also goes along with:

"Why tiptoe through life only to arrive at death safely?"

I agree, it's a cool quote. I use to work with an old Vietnam Vet, biker guy who had that quote at the bottom of all his e-mails. He was a beer drinking, bike riding, bar fighting s.o.b. He also had a plastic nose because his real one had been broken so many times.

If you can't appreciate that quote, then it doesn't apply to you.

Yeah, I don't remember that one from the counselor's office.

logan, more like 'drugs are bad, mkey'
