For some it’s a delicious ice-cream sundae. For others, it’s the view of the ocean at Bixby Bridge. For me, it’s the perfect plate of pasta carbonara. That’s the light-hearted way we use the phrase “to die for.” But, of course, the term also points to deeper meanings. For certain cherished principles, or people, or passions, some of use are willing to sacrifice our very lives. Perhaps it would be equally accurate to say: these are the things we live for.
