"And you needn't die happy when your day comes, but you must die satisfied, for you have lived your life from beginning to end and ka is always served."
- The Dark Tower, Stephen King
Something about this really spoke to me. As an atheist, it's not unusual for me to be accused of hating my life... I guess people confuse atheism with nihilism and it's really not that at all. I have no evidence or reason to believe that there is life after this one and it makes me cherish this life and this world all the more. I won't be happy about it ending at all (ending for me that is) but I will most certainly be satisfied that I lived my life to the fullest and had the opportunity to be a cog in nature's wondrous inner-workings.
