Read Elsewhere: Being Alive

from We Need To Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver:  

I have theorized that you can locate most people on a spectrum of the crudest sort and that it may be their position on this scale with which their every other attribute correlates:  exactly how much they like being here, just being alive.

from Seth Godin's blog:

All you've got - all any of us have - are the memories and expectations and changes we've left with others.
The concrete impact of our lives and our work is the mark you make on other people. It might be a product you make or the way you look someone in the eye. It might be a powerful experience you have on a trip with your dad, or the way you keep a promise.
The experiences you create are the moments that define you. We'll miss you when you're gone, because we will always remember the mark you made on us.
