Two Days

"There are only two days with fewer than
twenty-four hours in each lifetime, sitting like
bookends astride our lives: one is celebrated
every year, yet it is the other that makes us
see living as precious."

... a poetic observation from With the End in Mind: Dying, Death, and Wisdom in an Age of Denial by Kathryn Mannix, as quoted in Cathy Rentzenbrink's essay "When comfort reading won't cut it: books to restore hope in humanity".
