Six Feet Under Quotes

“What makes you think people stay together because it makes them happy?” I think this is pretty common that people just stay together because they’ve been together and they’d prefer not to go through the finding someone process again.

“If he were a careful man he might have lived longer, but would he have enjoyed it as much?” This one hit me true because I know I could live a straight life and forgo the “sins” of life that provide entertainment and are bad for you. This particular quote came from an episode about a biker who passed on who’s motto was to live every day like it was your last. Sadly I don’t do this.

“A soulmate is the person who makes you the most you could possibly be.” I don’t think I could find a better definition of the term. I’m not sure if everyone has a soulmate (my inclination is no) but finding someone who makes you better and forces your soul to grow the most is what comes to mind when I think about a “soulmate”.
