“There is no dishonor in losing the race. There is only dishonor in not racing because you are afraid to lose.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

“He died that day because his body had served its purpose. His soul had done what it came to do, learned what it came to learn, and then was free to leave.”
Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain

“That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.”
Garth Stein
