If He Were Alive Today, Would He Listen to Pink Floyd?

I wouldn't normally post to tell you about anything that's been stuck in my head, but a couple quotations have been lingering in my consciousness for a few days, and I've just got to get them out.

They've been jammed in there like a pop jingle, and maybe blogging them will release me from their fiendish grip.

And all you touch and all you see
is all your life will ever be.
Pink Floyd   Breathe

If you would not be forgotten,
as soon as you are dead and rotten,
either write things worth reading,
or do things worth the writing.
Ben Franklin
I confess that I'm a bit of a sucker for meaning-of-life quotes, but I've never before had the experience of being actively haunted by poetry.
