“you got to get with living, or get with dying.”
From a purely logistical analysis at the start of pursuing either of those positions, if you are hoping to cause as minimal impact on the lives of those around you, your actions would be the same?
If you aim to live you pursue a course to help yourself but also those around you, to end in a position of care, and to rectify wrongs.
If you aim to die you seek to minimise any harm to those around you and obliviate any issues that may cause harm.
At the start of that endeavour your actions will look exactly the same.
I guess that’s why that line works so well at that point in the film and resonates so we’ll.
