Do you have The Bucket List [IMDb, Wikipedia] (things that you want to do before you kick the bucket [die])? What would you be thinking when a doctor tells you only have six months to live, a year if you are lucky?

Two questions: Have you found joy in your life? and Has your life brought joy to others?

I think for both of Edward and Carter, they are seeking the joy and trying to bring joy to each other. Carter dedicated his life to his family, at the last time of his life for the first time, he is encouraged by Edward to do what he hadn't had a chance or courage to fulfill.

Does life have purpose? How do you measure a life? Is life really measurable? Everyone has own answer. But do we need answers to our lives? Life is not as simple as yes or no. You may or may not be descibing your life in words. However, I am sure that life needs to be experienced. You can't not just live by what people tell you, we need to find out a way to live, our own way. Each life is unique, whether it is good or bad.

If your answers to both questions are No, then you haven't got you life started. It would never be too late to do something until you stop breathing.
