Before I die…. – Bevor ich sterbe…

Ein starker Text des 2008 mit 87 Jahren verstorbenen Edmund N. Carpenter über den Sin des Lebens. Carpenter schrieb den Text als 17-Jähriger. Eine Leseempfehlung.

It may seem very strange to the reader that one of my tender age should already be thinking about that inevitable end to which even the paths of glory lead. However, this essay is not really concerned with death, but rather with life, my future life. I have set down here the things which I, at this age, believe essential to happiness and complete enjoyment of life. Some of them will doubtless seem very odd to the reader; others will perhaps be completely in accord with his own wishes. At any rate, they compose a synopsis of the things which I sincerely desire to have done before I leave this world and pass on to the life hereafter or to oblivion.
