In the end, it’s not the years in your life that counts. It’s the life in your years. – Abraham Lincoln
Meaning of this Quote
We count our age by years, isn’t it? Did you ever think if that is actually the way to count how long did you live? At the end of the day, it is never about the years in your life that counts! It is all about the life in your years.
When we celebrate our birthdays, we usually light the candle by the year of our age, but we tend to forget that it is not about the age or the number of years you have lived. Living your life is never about the age, but it is always about what did you do to make that life worthwhile? It is not the years of life that should bother you anyway!
There have been a lot of people who have lived so many years yet failed to make anything worthy of sense. On the other hand, there are a few people who died at a very young age, but we still remember them for something that they have done for the sake of others. Thus, a man is remembered not by the number of years he lives, but by his actions.
Instead of having a prolonged life where you haven’t done anything sensible, it is important to do something meaningful in the years you live. If you want to make sure that people remember you even when you are gone, try doing something that makes them feel proud of you. Inculcate life in your years, instead of just counting the years you alive!
