Live all you can; it’s a mistake not to. It doesn’t matter so much what you do in particular so long as you have your life. If you haven’t had that what have you had? I’m too old - too old at any rate for what I see. What one loses one loses; make no mistake about that. Still, we have the illusion of freedom; therefore don’t, like me to-day, be without the memory of that illusion. I was either, at the right time, too stupid or too intelligent to have it, and now I’m a case of reaction against the mistake. For it was a mistake. Live, live!

Henry James, The Ambassadors
