Ever thought about your last words? If you’re under the age of 60, probably not. At a certain point in your life, you shift from thinking about how many years you’ve lived to how many years you have left.
Medieval English courts had a principle that “no one on the point of death should be presumed to be lying”.
The first evidence of a dying declaration was found in a legal case from the year 1202.
Once we realize our own mortality, an unconscious terror sets in and when we speak with a positive emotional tone, it serves as protection against that deep fear.
How you spent your life, that dash on the tombstone, determines your final words. Make your “dash” count.
