What is life? I guess every person ponders upon this question one time or the other. Some might see life as a dream, some find it too real to bear. Some might call it a comedy of errors, others see it only as a tragedy. For some, ambition is the only purpose of life. Others may say love is life’s sole purpose and its best rewards. For some, life is an obligation that is to be endured. For others, it is an adventure.
I guess life is like a kaleidoscope. Every person sees it from his or her unique perspective.
How do I see life? For me,
- Life is an opportunity to feel love and an obligation to show humanity.
- Life is an opportunity to leave your mark upon the world and an obligation to make it a better place.
- Life is an opportunity to create and an obligation to nurture.
But who am I to know what life really is? I do not have that wisdom, nor enough experience. So, let me leave you with words of people far wiser than me.
