“Many individuals, such as yourselves, of course, [have] an unwillingness to acknowledge to themselves how wonderful the experience of living is.
It doesn’t matter whether you die young, you die old, you die in childbirth. It doesn’t matter whether you have diseases or not, it doesn’t matter if you’ve messed up your whole body because you ate a lot of sugar, drank a lot of coffee, smoked all your life, drank yourself through alcoholism, took drugs. It doesn’t matter.
It doesn’t matter that you destroyed yourself physically. It doesn’t matter that you shortened, extended your life. It doesn’t matter that you sacrificed yourself all the good things in life in order to live a good life and then found out you died at 28 anyway.
It doesn’t matter.
Because every moment of living, every moment of choosing, is a moment of joy because you get to do it. Not anybody else.”
