We’ve added years to life, not life to years...

‎"We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much. 

We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living but not a life. 

We’ve added years to life, not life to years."

- George Carlin 1937 - 2008
