    OR, you two smug twerps aren’t as smart as you think, and don’t understand the quote.

    I don’t care how old you are, when you reach the end, it’s too short.

    Taken out of context that quote may be misinterpreted, In context he is saying that life outside of society would be such not life in general.

    Almost a duplicate: http://www.gocomics.com/frazz/2004/12/02
    But both versions are funny. And hey, it’s always better than reruns!

    It kind loses the joke when the quote is deliberately misinterpreted.

    Hobbes was fine with it.

    “Whatsoever therefore is consequent to a time of Warre, where every man is Enemy to every man; the same is consequent to the time, wherein men live without other security, than what their own strength, and their own invention shall furnish them withall. In such condition, there is no place for Industry; because the fruit thereof is uncertain; and consequently no Culture of the Earth; no Navigation, nor use of the commodities that may be imported by Sea; no commodious Building; no Instruments of moving, and removing such things as require much force; no Knowledge of the face of the Earth; no account of Time; no Arts; no Letters; no Society; and which is worst of all, continuall feare, and danger of violent death; And the life of man, solitary, poore, nasty, brutish, and short.”

    Context is everything

    Says the guy who can never find enough time for all he wants to do, vainly staying off atrophy by motion, and another guy with the same issues.
    Nice use of contrast.

    A thousand years isn’t enough. The world is too full of wonder to experience it all. Life will always be too short.

    Well since Thomas Hobbs was talking about the Common man living a life “nasty, brutish and short” over the Man living well. He didn’t get anything wrong here. Continual war is grinding the world down.

    Life is definitely too short to be that angry at comic strip characters.
