“Live, love, forgive and be grateful, always”
Sherry Joyce

“I know now that we never get over great losses; we absorb them, and they carve us into different, often kinder, creatures.”
Gail Caldwell, Let's Take the Long Way Home: A Memoir of Friendship

“Cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.”
Joe Klein, Primary Colors: A Novel of Politics

“Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.”
Lois McMaster Bujold, A Civil Campaign

“I woke up thinking a very pleasant thought. There is lots left in the world to read.”
Nicholson Baker, The Anthologist

“Without compassion, we will never know anyone or anything, not even our own story. Too much judgment, too many ideas and attitudes will stand in the way of the fundamental principle that we are similar to, connected with, and part of everything else.”
Deena Metzger
