Half Lived Life

"For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all of the horrors of the half lived life"
Herman Melville (1819-1891)

Melville was an American novelist, short story writer and poet. His best known for Moby Dick where the above quote was taken. He wrote this in the 19th century but his word still ring true. The same life force that flowed through many sages' and prophets' lives, also flows through us today. Don't ignore your inner voice, silent spark of life that we all have but don't n let them out. Let's not be stingy with our love and joy. Just ask yourself, are you living your life as fully as you were meant to live?
