I have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.

the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.
I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.

and the cold sweat of our fear.
We accept gratefully the entirety
of our past and our present life.

Apathy, indifference, not caring...
It may sound insensitive for me to say, "I don't care,"

and I also choose to be indifferent to gossip,
petty complaints, and idle chatter.
About those, I just don't care.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I expect to pass through this world but once.

One of the greatest titles we can have is "old friend."
We never appreciate how important old friends are until we are older.
The problem is we need to start our old friendships when we are young.

when a busy life and changing geographies
can cause us to neglect those friends.
Today is the day to invest in those people
we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.
- Grant Fairley
