I saw the movie The Bucket List last night, and it was very inspirational. I thought the following scene was particularly poignant and familiar.
Carter: You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls got to the entrance to heaven the gods asked them two questions. Their answers determined whether they were admitted or not.
Edward: Ok, I’ll bite. What were they?
Carter: Have you found joy in your life?
Carter: Answer the question.
Carter: Yeah, you.
Edward: Answer the question, “Have I found joy in my life?”
Carter: Has your life brought joy to others?
Edward: Uh, that’s a tough question. I, uh, I don’t know. Uh, think about how other people gauge, uh… Ask them.
Carter: I’m asking you.
