I love the following quotation said to be the work of Mark Twain, but I’m not quite sure as there are other opinions.
“Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you’ve never been hurt and live like it’s heaven on Earth."
We’ve all been too pretentious whether intentionaly or unintentionally in our daily life, after we started to learn. We live a life of husbands. We live a life of wives. We live a life of fathers and sons. We live a life of mothers and daughters. We live a life of students and teachers. We live a life to employ and be employed. But, I’d confirm that
we rarely live a life of our own.
