Thinking about death puts things into perspective. It’s the most accurate balance for determining the importance of things. The career, the moments of pleasure and delight, the applause, the power… all have their place in our lives. But how important are they?

“While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die.” – Leonardo da Vinci
