Life is so fragile.



Life is so fragile. 
That's why we should live it like we are indestructible.

This came to me while I was riding yesterday. As far as I know, it's my first original motto.

Here is another one, by late great Hunter S. Thompson. I like it a lot, despite the unnecessary God intrusion:

“Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”

Thompson committed suicide at the age of 67. Per his wishes, his ashes were fired out of a cannon in a ceremony funded by his friend, Johnny Depp, and attended by a host of friends including then Senator John Kerry and Jack Nicholson.
