The complete quote by Charles Bukowski is;
“Your life is your life. Don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
Be on the watch. There are ways out. There is light somewhere.
It may not be much light but it beats the darkness.
Be on the watch. The gods will offer you chances.
You can’t beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes.
And the more often you learn to do it, the more light there will be.
Your life is your life.
Know it while you have it.
You are marvelous.
The gods wait to delight in you.”
The gods are always offering us chances aren’t they? Even if you don’t believe in gods per se, are you taking these chances? Are you seeking the light in your life wherever you can find it? Always believing in that light, the places the dark hasn’t shined yet?
