No one
can tell the difference.

people who will
never find out.

see again.

them win.

third.

person you
know.

death
matters, nothing is as important as it first
seems.

important
moments. It’s there for our convenience, not
the caller’s.

lose.

how many
times you have to cross the same river.

read, No
Regrets

back on life,
you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more
than the ones
you did.

someone you love
them.

someone else
choose it for you.

you need only stay a few minutes.
