it was amazing

Clear, simple and still relevant. Not much else to say really - this is classic philosophy and very much matches how I try and think about the world. The key principle is explained on the first page:

It is not that we have a short time to live, but that we waste a lot of it. Life is long enough, and a sufficiently generous amount has been given to us for the highest achievements if it were all well invested.
