I just liked this passage that I came across.
It’s hard to explain it.
The word “wild” coupled with “precious” captures something all the other cliches seem to miss.
- “You only live once.”
- “Make memories.”
- “Life is so short and special.”
It makes you want to get up, and live.
“As poet Mary Oliver wrote: “Tell me, what is it you plan to do / with your one wild and precious life?”
