“The most profound moment in life when one realizes one has two lives.” – Quotationize
The two lives are: the first one is simply being alive (as opposed to death) and the second one is the life which we have choices to do what we want.
Or what American novelist and short-story writer Bernard Malamud (above) said, the life we learn with and the life we live with.
One Realizes One Has Two Lives
Another equally meaningful quotation is by Confucius:
“We have two lives, and the second begins when we realize we only have one.”
