On my Gravestone

Although I prefer cremation because I'd rather not use up space on Earth once I'm gone, if I had a gravestone, I would like it to show one of these epitaphs:
"He wanted everyone to be happy" --- not very poetic or profound, but true
"He died learning" --- my goal, and why I am a teacher.

I am never more alive than when I am learning something.
Does that mean the second statement can never come true?
