There's the proverb: Перед смертью не надышишься.

literally: You can't breathe enough before death.

meaning: There is no way to make up for lost time.

good translation in french: Ce n'est pas la peine de respirerbien avant la mort.

Though it's not so simple. Because I want to interpret the sense: You always want to take one breath more before you die.

Help me plz to construct the phrase in french in that light.
