Carpe Diem
Life is a moment.
There is no hereafter.
So make it burn always with the hardest flame.
“The Picture of Dorian Gray”

What will you do when the time will over? Are you sure that it will be enough for you? If not, seize the day! Later never exists. There is only “here” and “now”. They are going by, becoming things of the past and neither your remorse, nor regrets will save them. Most people turn on the waterworks about things left undone and words left unsaid The moment is like a snowflake: you have only few seconds to admire its beauty, it is useful for a blink, then it turns into water. The biggest tragedy for a person that they spent the whole their life, waiting when the moment to live begins. We are so busy to live! Always “not yet”, “later”. Do flowers in spring say "not yet"? You are incapable to put the moment in a bank and wait the better times. Don’t lost your best moments only because you don’t sure. There is no time for mulling over. “There is only a moment between the past and the future, and this moment is called life” as it was said in one beautiful Russian song from the movie “The Sannikov Land”. So, don’t wait for a special occasion. Being alive is the special occasion. Fulfill every moment of your precious life, do what you like to do, be with those whom you love and say what you feel. “You only live once; but if you live it right, once is enough.” (Adam Marshall)
