View Full Version : "Only The Good Die Young"

In your last post #47 requesting a reply in the other thread, I had actually posted a reply but Chang removed it.

Here is your long-awaited reply:-

This is really a trivial matter but you choose to go ON and ON to blow it up by a few other irrelevant and unnecessary comments in your post #47.

How would this be 'bad taste'? Care to clarify 'your thoughts'?

These words are a common condolence offered as a form of consolation to the loved ones of those who have passed away before their years.

'Generally it means that "Good people are usually selfless and more prone to self-sacrifice. They wouldn't lie and cheat to save their own lives and fortunes; hence, the good are likely to die younger than the ones who run and hide [as in War], take everything for themselves, leave others out in the cold in order to save themselves."


I understand that slogan 'Only The Good Die Young' is normally use for a child who is normally innocent & who die young.

It is not use for any human being (repeat any human being) who is over half a century years old.

A lot of water had flowed under the bridge for any one who is over 50 years and we actually do not know their passed deeds.


1. Adolf Hilter who died at the age of 56, killed 6 millions Jews & you think 'Only The Good Die Young.'

2. Also, Mother Teresa died at the ripe old age of 87.

She had helped countless people and will soon be honoured as a Saint by The Vatican.

Thanks God, Mother Teresa did not die young.

You are welcome to rebute if I have erred.

'The 'bad' on the other hand prey on the 'good people' in order to further their (bad) interests.'

This comment is totally irrelevant & unnecessary & it shows you 'over-think' & are bringing up 'Old Issues' in your long running feud with me

In closing, I hope that we need not take this Thread in Memory of David to banter on with the 'silly chatty chatter' that some out here are so fond off.

Again, this is another of your irrelevant & unnecessary comment.

Again it shows you 'over-think' & are bringing up 'Old Issues' in your long running feud with me

Unlike you, in my post #44, I was only commenting on that slogan 'Only The Good People Die Young' and nothing else.

Repeat, Nothing else!

The very thing that David disliked, and choose to leave this Forum after being here for over a decade.

Really, I thought he was banned permanently by the Moderator since the 14th Nov 2015.

He did not leave the forum!

Please check your own comment.

Should have read 'past deeds' instead of passed deeds.:(

I think because of our eastern culture, once a person has passed away, we don't talk about the bad things of the deceased, let bygones be bygones. Those who encountered bad experience with the deceased will normally choose not to share their side of bad experience as a kind of respect to someone who has passed away.

The friends of the deceased can share their good stories about the deceased. However, one should not tell a false story or twisted some facts while sharing their side of stories..
