      Well I think they both make sense so I'll give my input for both.

    1st one: I think as human beings, one of the things we are the most scared of is death and I think it's because noone knows what it's like. When we experience it, we are no longer here. I think often times, we worry too much about the future and rather than live our life for what it is, we're too busy concentrating on what 'it can become' (eg: working endless hours to make more money, thus buy a bigger house, thus getting a new car, etc)
    It's good to be prospective but only to a point. I think the msg of the quote is to simply live your life, each day for what it's worth, because when the day comes to die, it's more regrettable to look back with 'I could haves, should haves, would haves'. Death is not what we should be afraid of. We all only have one life to live and as James Dean said "Dream asif you'll live forever. Live asif you'll die today". I don't remember who said this but "As soon as we're born we start dying, so we might aswell have a good time".

    2nd: Alot of people say they don't care of what others think but the truth is that as human beings, we are filled and to an extent, controlled by emotions. We all want acceptance, we all want validation, we all want to be liked and respected and in a way, we all want to be better. I mean think about it, didn't you want to have the best grades? The best job? The best looking gf/bf? The best car? The highest income? The biggest house? The latest trends?! Who doesn't? But the fact of the matter is that noone really cares about what you have. What they care about is how it ranks them beside you. Haven't you ever been in school and got a test back where you were so proud of your B+!? Then, you ask people what they got, and everyone got As and A+s. Your B+ then doesn't look as good as it did at 1st and your pride turns into disappointment and almost even shame.
    At the end of the day, although we are surrounded by people, it's a lonely world. Noone wants you to do better than them and that's what the quote means to me when it says 'The world is a hard and lonely place'.
    However, regardless of all the differences, whether it's income, status, or whatever, at the end we are all humans and our mortality unites us. At the end of the day, we are all the same because we all end up in the same place. Money can't buy you life, beauty can't keep you away from death and nor can a big house shelter you from it. At the end, we are all only human beings and we can try to showcase ourselves as something with all the materialistic things and try to fool ourselves into believing that we are better but we all get sick, we all get hurt, we all feel pain, we all we die, and when we're dead, we're gone. Noone cares about what you had or what you were. When you're dead, you're dead and that's how people see you.

      Kevin,
          The first one reminds me much of Shakespeare's "It is better to have love and lost than to never have loved at all." So in one respect, be thankful for what you have I suppose during the time you have it and when it's gone just remember what it was like with it (as all things do eventually end and go away it would be crazy to think anything lasts forever).
          For your quotes to help track down whoever said whatever quote you think of go here:

          I think I like the second one best because it's a bit less after-school special. It actually is pretty much what I just said in the first paragraph up there.
          Now can I ask you something? What are these quotes for?
