Zoe Akins On Death


Nothing seems so tragic to one who is old as the death of one who is young, and this alone proves that life is a good thing.  -Zoe Akins

Death can happen to anyone, young or old. This quote is referring to life and death. But, death does not have to be physical; it can be emotional. Some stop living. This could be a lack of interest in enjoyable activities, feeling empty or hopeless. From an older person perspective, seeing a younger person facing these issues can seem tragic. This quote by Zoe Alkins is illustrating how time can be valuable. Life can be tough sometimes, but from an old person standpoint, life is precious, and we should appreciate every minute of it. We should learn to overlook things, practice forgiveness, accomplishing goals and live the life we desired before time is up.
