In depth

“If I had my life to live over, I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the ‘good’ living room and burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in the storage.”

Emma Bombeck after finding out she had breast cancer. Two years later she died after having a transplant.

“Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save anything for a special occasion. Today is special enough (…). You don’t have to get cancer to start living life to the fullest.” (Regina Brett)
