It is not an easy thing to be grateful for everything in your life. It requires a little perspective, an understanding of how all events, people and emotions are interconnected and most of all it requires the act of getting your head out of your ass. (For me, that's the hard part.)

“The hardest part of leaving isn't the looking back; it isn't the loss you feel for a place or people; it's the fear that what you intended to leave isn't ever going to go, and that what you really want, you're never going to get.”
Teri Coyne, The Last Bridge

“I looked at the people around me and wondered who they were. What made us a family? Certainly not a common experience, as each of us had a different story, and although we shared characters, the villain in mine might be the hero in Wendy's”
Teri Coyne, The Last Bridge

“This was the whole point, wasn't it? I had learned there is always more to feel even when you think you have gotten to the bottom; it's just a resting place on the downward spiral.”
Teri Coyne, The Last Bridge

“We all know that something is eternal. And it ain’t houses and it ain’t names, and it ain’t earth, and it ain’t even the stars . . . everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings. All the greatest people ever lived have been telling us that for five thousand years and yet you’d be surprised how people are always losing hold of it. There’s something way down deep that’s eternal about every human being.”
Thornton Wilder, Our Town

“The test of an adventure is that when you're in the middle of it, you say to yourself "Oh now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home. And the sign that something's wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure.”
Thornton Wilder

“Seek the lofty by reading, hearing and seeing great work at some moment every day. ”
Thornton Wilder

“[Whenever] you get near the human race, there's layers and layers of nonsense.”
Thornton Wilder
