The Last Lecture: Final Thoughts

So I finished the book several days ago and wanted to leave you guys with two more quotes from Randy Pausch:

"Complaining does not work as a strategy. We all have finite time and energy. Any time we spend whining is unlikely to help us achieve our goals. And it won't make us happier."

"It's not about how to achieve your dreams. It's about how to lead your life. If you lead your life the right way, the karma will take care of itself. The dreams will come to you."

If you read the book as well, feel free to share any thoughts. I personally loved how he led his life down to the very end. I probably would have fallen to pieces, but he saw this wouldn't do him or the people he loved any good. He was realistic about his situation and yet sought to enjoy every minute. But living as if it might be his last day wasn't such a huge departure for him; it's how he had been living the whole time.
