Why do some people say "life is too short"?

Report as

Because it flies by. One moment your leaping through the air, the next your hobbling around whacking people with your cane.

Just when you have a handle on one stage of life, it's over and you are on to something new, sometimes before you know it.

Because there's not enough time in the day, week, month, year to waste on being upset and not taking risks.

By the time you mature and figure out what to do with your life....there's not a whole lot of time left.

For most people it is. Those who live life right is seems to fly right by, You have heard time flies when you're having fun. However those who make the wrong choices have to live with consequences it can drag on and on and on.

By the time you figure out what you need to do, and do it, it's half over.

Iratus and Lady Wood came up with the right answer. You only gave a partial quote. It's usually used as "Life's too short to be angry / resentful / unhappy / or-insert-your-own-word. It means that since we only live once we should spend our time doing things we enjoy with people we enjoy and not to worry about trifles.

That doesn't mean we shouldn't work hard to make a good life for ourselves. Life may seem too short to work, but it's also too short to waste with no money because we were too lazy to earn it.

We're all sunburnt at the moment (but not too much). Been at the beach for the past couple of weeks.

BTW I just quoted your "don't sweat the small stuff" in answer to another question.

They didn't complete the sentence. Life is too short compared to how long other things stood. For example: Life is too short compared to how long the sun's life is. Life is too short compared to how long the universe's been here.

because we have so many chances, and opportunities, and different dreams, that collide with what society says we HAVE to do, and we never have enough time in this life to fulfill the chances and opportunities, and after this life, there is no more earth. no more chances, just up or down.
