An excellently inspiring, motivating and emotional look at the themes of the Legend of Zelda in the context of our wider culture. From Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask to Twilight Princess and The Wind Waker, this article looks at life, death, seizing opportunity and beyond.
On a surface level the title “Destined to Fade” will not come across as very inspiring. Indeed, at first glance it is not very optimistic to think of our lives as fleeting, finite and destined for death. However, accepting that nothing lasts forever and coming to terms with our own inevitable death is a significant milestone in life.
It is important that we take life as it is now, with the ups and downs, over illusions of eternity. Accepting that everything is destined to fade has profoundly significant and optimistic implications for how you live your life today.
