Written with so much heart. Highly recommended.

Whenever time permits, I wait until the very end of the credits after a movie, and cast my eyes over the names. A silent and distant hat tip.

“A change of meaning is necessary to change this world politically, economically and socially. But that change must begin with the individual; it must change for him... If meaning is a key part of reality, then, once society, the individual and relationships are seen to mean something different a fundamental change has taken place. (The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying)”

“...most people, including me, tend to applaud the wrong things: the showy, dramatic record-setting sprint rather than the years of dogged preparation or the unwavering grace displayed during a string of losses.”
