The only gaurentees are death and taxes. Agree or disagree?

Most of the time I feel that I can’t take anything for granted. Nothing is for sure, if try relaxing my life will go to hell.


Yes, you do. ----air, rain drops, sunshine…all are FOC.

I don’t want to relax too much also,for me 85% hard work,15% relax.I had experience too much of bad lifestyle causes my life to go stray!

I try to plan as little as possible to the extreme because I found the larger an expectation is the more likely it is to just be disappointing.

How about gravity and the speed of light?

Maybe we can’t take gravity, air, rain drops for granted either…

But I get it, we take too much for granted. Death and taxes are upon us all… well not all, some evade taxes.

I think grief from family members is pretty certain.


My favorite response when someone says I “have to do something,” is “I don’t have to do anything except die.” I really don’t even HAVE TO pay taxes. I could land in hot water, but I don’t HAVE TO pay taxes.

Hmm…I think the only taxes I pay are on cigarettes.

Death, taxes, and stupidity.

I agree and this reminds me of song lyrics by Alabama -

I’m in a hurry to get things done
Oh, I rush and rush until life’s no fun
All I really got to do is live and die
But I’m in a hurry and don’t know why

I agree with death and taxes…

I would also add… change.

Everything always changes…

From the bible:

“Time and chance happeneth to them all.” — Eccl. 9:11

You can avoid taxes but you can never avoid death. Only death is certain.
