“Try to learn to breathe deeply,
really to taste food when you eat,
and when you sleep, really to sleep.
Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might,
and when you laugh, laugh like hell.
And when you get angry, get good and angry.
Try to be alive.
It will all be over soon enough.”
-Ernest Hemingway
