Paul Kalanithi – “Before I Go: A Stanford neurosurgeon’s parting wisdom about life and time” – The Washington Post

“Everyone succumbs to finitude. I suspect I am not the only one who reaches this pluperfect state. Most ambitions are either achieved or abandoned; either way, they belong to the past. The future, instead of the ladder toward the goals of life, flattens out into a perpetual present. Money, status, all the vanities the preacher of Ecclesiastes described, hold so little interest: a chasing after wind, indeed.” via Before I Go: A Stanford neurosurgeon’s parting wisdom about life and time – The Washington Post.
