It means that the universe has been around for billions of years and you're life occupies a very small part of it, so you should live it to the fullest.

Kind of corny right?

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

In the grand scheme of things, life is short.

Most buildings in some cities are older than an average human's lifespan. Thus, life is short.

If you have a chance to do something, do it, because you might not get another chance.

Lame, but that's what it means.

I think once u get older, you might feel that life is short.

Maybe due to the fact that your old an senile, you've lost most of your memory so it feels like you haven't lived much.


but yeah seriously, life IS short, seize the day, live for the moment, grab life and anal sex it!

S hit man I'm 18 already. not too old not too young. I can remember stuff from pre-school. Everything seems like it was just a dream and I remember very few parts. Its crazy to think how much time flies. Just last year was my last year of Highschool and it went like that. (Snaps fingers.)

Time really goes by and you don't seem to notice it. I was thinking the other night that, before i know it its already night. not due to the shorter days thing but time is just flying by.

Its basically used to get people off their ass and do something productive. Because you never know what tomorrow brings. Tomorrow was never promised.

Not if the chupacabra breaks into your room while you sleep and rapes you after killing you.

Tomorrow Never Knows (i love that song but doesn't relate ). There could be a shooting at your school tomorrow morning. Tomorrow the president of Iran is coming to Columbia University, 2 minutes away from my school. I could get bombed tomorrow!

We all wished we could accomplish all our dreams (cheesy) but sometimes you have to sacrifice once-in-a-life-time moments that when you turn 80 you'd say "**** why didn't i....)

Life is short because the age limit is 120. Which is a long time and the only way to fully enjoy those 120 years is to stay in the best shape ever. But don't take every chance you get, because not everything is worth it.

What are you living for? And is it worth dying for? Just remember, our life on earth is short, and judgment is coming for all, whether you believe it or not. Jesus loves you man, and if you like the idea of having a more abundant life, I would seek your friendly neighborhood Christian on how to receive a life of joy. =]

There's no need to be a smartass and ridicule someone because of their religious beliefs.

****, we get it, you kids are atheists, no one gives a **** and no one thinks you're intelligent for not believing in a God.

anyway, life is short in comparison to the vast expanse of time. It basically means you should live life to the full, like everyone else has said.

some might argue, and i'm not one to take this view, but it's a reasonable one, that the fact that life is short is a reason not to sieze the day, because when you look back, it will all just be a memory. you won't care what you did, because no matter how great it was, it's still just a memory, and you still feel like you've wasted all your time.
