We are still touched by the tragically poignant tale:
I am currently watching Julian Fellowes’ new Titanic series, an interesting approach to the world’s most famous shipwreck. The finale airs tonight on ITV1 at 9:00pm.
Trending on Polyvore – Titanic Fashion:
A Titanic Memorial Cruise set sail this week to pay remembrance to the great cruise liner.
Eva Hart, the last person said to have any memory of the catastrophic event, died at the age of 91 in 1996. She described the plaque placed on the shipwreck at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean as:
“A tribute to man’s arrogance. [...] This was a ship which needn’t have lost a life.”
As a young child, I found the Titanic infinitely fascinating and devoured any mention of the vessel in non-fictional works, particularly encyclopedias. It is a tale which never ought to be repeated, nor forgotten.
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
Rest in Peace, the more than 1500 people who perished in the early hours of this day, 100 years ago.
