Now that is a funny reference. Well done, coco.coco wrote:It's better to burn out than to fade away

I've always been confused by this statement. Sure, I know the references of burning fire versus being a nobody, but as someone who depended on fire for his survival for over ten years, burning out and fading away are one-in-the-same. Watching a fire burn itself could easily be described with both of those references. If I want to die a, "Good Death" as One-Stab stated in the movie Legends of the Fall, I'd rather be eaten by a bear. That's a lot more dramatic than a fading, burning out fire.
