  1. So many times you find yourself thinking about the decisions you took in your life, where did you go wrong, what could you have done better and what needs to be changed, only to hear the *plop* sound seconds later and realize that you’re in a fucking public restroom and you have to go.

  2. Einmal ist keinmal. What happens but once might as well not have happened at all. If we have only one life to live, we might as well not have lived at all.

  3. We might singularly have only one life to live, but still our actions affect the lives of future generations and every being that will live after our death in general.
    We have only one life to live, but I have to disagree on the fact that “einmal ist keinmal”, that’s mathematically and logically incorrect.

  4. Maths and logic are both great, luckily (or not, points of view) they don’t apply to everything in life.

    Philosophy and opinions vary and each of us can have their views without one being correct and the other wrong.

    Nietzsche brought back the idea of eternal return, of circular time. Life is repeated infinite times and that brings a new weight to life. In that case, everything you do has meaning because it’s endlessly repeated. If we argue that such thing isn’t true, that time isn’t circular, but simply linear, life gains lightness.

    “If we live only once, then we can never compare the decisions we make to any alternatives. And if we can never compare different outcomes, we can never know if the decisions we made are correct or not, which means we can never judge them properly or take responsibility for them. Hence, to live only once is to live with lightness.”

    The unbearable lightness of being.
