Awareness of impermanence is encouraged, so that when it is coupled with our appreciation of the enormous potential of our human existence, it will give us a sense of urgency that I must use every precious moment.
-The 14th Dalai Lama

After all
We will never again have the chance to be born into a body like this one.
- Kalu Rinpoche

On the day that you were born, you began to die.
Do not waste a single moment more!
- Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

and hey! don't be afraid of death...
Death is neither depressing nor exciting; it is simply a fact of life.
- Sogyal Rinpoche

If you do not make good use of this free and precious life,
What good does it do to possess a human body?
- Shabkar
