We must ask ourselves these questions: Will death welcome us, or will we welcome death? Will death scare us, or will death be scared of us? I know what I’d chose, what about you?

[This Bukowski quote/phrase was originally shown to me as a poem (however, the quote feature did not allow me to break it down by stanza); I will include the original formatting of the poem below.]

 

We are here
to laugh
at the odds
and live our lives
so well that
death
will tremble
to take us.

-Charles Bukowski
