The translation is not exact, but it’s got the spirit of the meaning in German.
“Lebe jeden Tag als wäre es dein letzter!”
“Live every day as if it were your last.”
I took this photo 23 July 2012 on a walk along the Dreisam River out in the Littenweiler neighborhood in Freiburg im Breisgau.
It was something that stuck out to me, and I was just really drawn to take the photo and keep the quote with me. It’s something I’d like to keep in mind, personally, because I tend to be overly cautious at times. It’s a rather pretty picture as well, reminds me of the great summer weather that Freiburg had that day.∗
