Have you heard this song? I like this song, it is quite lovely. Listen here.
Then I had a great laugh reading this, which is a scientist's take on the song!! :)
And I got there from this scientist's letter regarding a poem! http://www.lettersofnote.com/2012/09/the-vision-of-sin.html

I cannot write like this. But I think I've been trying to say the same thing.
And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all. It was a saying about noble figures in old Irish poems—he would give his hawk to any man that asked for it, yet he loved his hawk better than men nowadays love their bride of tomorrow. He would mourn a dog with more grief than men nowadays mourn their fathers.
And that's how we measure out our real respect for people—by the degree of feeling they can register, the voltage of life they can carry and tolerate—and enjoy. End of sermon. As Buddha says: live like a mighty river. And as the old Greeks said: live as though all your ancestors were living again through you.
