Woody Allen on “Living your Life backwards”

This is not going to be a lengthy post. It’s going to be precise and right up to the point.

Recently i came across an interesting message on whatsapp. The message was quoting the words of famous hollywood movie director Woody Allen. It tells how wonderful life could be if we live it backwards. I would like to type out the exact message rather than talking about it.


“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home and feel better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you are young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for highschool. You than go to primary school, you become a kid. You play. You have no responsibilities.You become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months in a floating spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters everyday and voila! You finish off as an orgasm”

– Woody Allen

It felt wonderful after reading those words. Life would be much simpler and cool if we start off in a coffin and end up as an embryo. This reminds me of the movie “The curious case of Benjamin Button” starring brad pitt which handles a similar subject.

As soon as I read the message yesterday I wanted to share it with you all. Today I did. Feeling happy. Have a great day folks!

Until next time,
