We all have two lives. The second begins when you realise you only have one.’ So I’m not wasting any time. And the thing is, negativity, for my money—they are like clouds that pass across the Sun. They will pass. They’re just feelings. And it’s important not to dwell on it and just move past it.
“Maybe it’s just getting older, you become so palpably aware this is not a dress rehearsal. There’s a big sign in blazing neon that says ‘You Haven’t Got Long.’ But I think it takes a beat to learn that. Life has to knock you down in order for you to realize it, because when you’re a kid you think you’re immortal.” Thomas William Hiddleston, (February 9th, 1981)
