Hmmm...interesting and profound.
This is something that sooner or later we all ask ourselves internally (and some people will never even realize it). Is it more important to live or to exist, in life generally? To get the best out of life, I live my life with the idea that everything we want in this world already exists and we, not somebody else, create our own reality.
Made me think.
I like it a lot.
They will forget what you said,
they will forget what you did,
but they will never forget the way you made them feel.
