    Khi ta ra đời, mọi người cười nhìn ta khóc
    Khi ta từ giã cõi đời này, ta có được mỉm cười nhìn mọi người khóc không???
    Ai sống trên đời rồi cũng sẽ về với cát bụi mà thôi!
    Vì thế chúng ta cần sống sao cho cuộc sống này thật ý nghĩa, phải không các bạn???

    Hãy sống để... được chết một lần!
