The two most important days in you life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.The title of the thread is a famous quote of Mark Twain, lauded as the greatest American humorist of his age.
However, I believe that the cited quote is neither a humor, nor a satire. It is not a witty remark either for which Mark Twain had no rival. Instead, it is one of the golden nuggets of wisdom ever recorded in writing by the human beings.
The day of birth is important because on this day only the journey begins. However, many unfortunate individuals simply get born and vanish one day like any other creature including insects.
It is very important to know as to why we are born? What is the purpose of our human life? In case, we are not able to discern the purpose of our life, then it is as good as that of any other animal.
The day of death is not important as on that day, the story ends.
