Irrecoverable Loss

(One of the scene in The Tudors…)

His majesty King Henry and the Duke of Suffolk are sitting together and had a little conversation… the king ask the Duke.

King Henry: “What loss, your Grace, is to man most irrecoverable?”

Charles: “His virtue.”

King Henry: “No, for by his actions he may redeem his virtue.”

Charles: “Then his honor.”

King Henry: “No, for again, he may find the means to recover it, even as a man recovers some fortune he has lost.”

Charles: “Then I cannot say your majesty.”

King Henry: “Time, your Grace. Of all losses, time is the most irrecoverable for it can never be redeemed.”

I get to thinking and insightful about it. The great old King Henry VIII even with his profound power, glory, supremacy and dominance, still he was reminded by TIME that he is mortal and everything has an end. For which, I realized that life is too short and we must live life to the fullest. Appreciate everything we have, meet people, enjoy, explore, and have time with your love one’s for you wouldn’t know when your time is done. As I quote King Henry VIII one of his citation “Even so, man appears on earth for a little while. But, of what went before this life, and what will follow, we know nothing”
