Stop and consider! Life is but a day;
A fragile dew-drop on its perilous way

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more; it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury

Could have happened to me....
But nothing ever happened to me
Except two children.

Life is not straight and easy corridor along which we travel free and unhampered, but a maze of passages through which we must seek our way, lost and confused, now and again checked in a blind alley.
(Archibald Joseph Cronin : 1896-1981)
Many people living in their twilight years suddenly realize how empty and pointless their lives have been. They have made some deals and had some fun but in terms of satisfying friendships or lasting accomplishments, their lives have been zero.
