Are you longing to live long ?

Why you wish to live longer ?

Old people are just young people who have been living for a long time unknown

Why you wish to live so long ?

Why not ?

What is wrong in wishing, to live Longer ?

Who does not want to juice their life beyond the required commitments ?

God has given this one life to be enjoyed as long as it is possible.And God knows this.

If you ask anybody,each one comes out with an explanation,as to why they wish to live longer.

“Old age is not a crime. It is the answer to our request for long life. As far as this old system exists, you must get old and feeble if you will live long.”
Vincent Okay Nwachukwu

What do I think of living longer ?

My feeling is living longer,no doubt gives those wonderful memories.

Nothing like spending time with grand children and great grand children and other dear ones.

Love and romance can continue.

The only requirement is maintaining good health,which in turn can make the person enjoy the quality time with people closer to you. (If the near & dear have time to spare !)

Other than age related health problems,

“The privilege of living a long life comes at a price -the increasing loss of those we know and love around us.” Stewart Stafford

The above quote is really scarring and sounding a real tragedy to see your younger and loved ones knocking the Heaven doors much earlier……….in front of your eyes.

So at the end, is it worth living longer ?

The supreme irony of life is that hardly anyone gets out of it alive Robert Heinlein

Please share your thoughts.

Thank you.

  1. Don’t we all want to see our children settled and then see our grandchildren in our lifetime and for that we need to live long and health should permit. Though some people say, ‘I just want to die’ but when the time to face death really arrives I think we all would be scared and anxious and think if we could live a bit more longer. No one wants to leave if given a choice and always want that extra extra more even when it comes to life!

  2. For a short response to you questions
    I’ll defer, as usual, to Bob Dylan 😎

    When you’re sad and when you’re lonely,
    and you haven’t got a friend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    And all that you’ve held sacred, falls down
    and does not mend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end
    When you’re standing on the crossroads
    that you cannot comprehend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    And all your dreams have vanished
    and you don’t know what’s up the bend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end
    When the storm clouds gather ’round you,
    and heavy rains descend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    And there’s no one there to comfort you,
    with a helpin’ hand to lend
    Just remember that death is not the end
    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end
    Oh, the tree of life is growing
    Where the spirit never dies
    And the bright light of salvation shines
    In dark and empty skies
    When the cities are on fire
    with the burning flesh of men
    Just remember that death is not the end
    And you search in vain to find
    just one law-abiding citizen
    Just remember that death is not the end
    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end
    Not the end, not the end
    Just remember that death is not the end
    ~ Bob Dylan
