Hugh Hewitt
“Some friendships fade. Others dissolve under stress or disagreement. Still other friends just leave. Those that stick, however, are almost irreplaceable; and the sadness of long life is losing friends.”
Hugh Hewitt, The Happiest Life: Seven Gifts, Seven Givers, and the Secret to Genuine Success

“I remember once when I was young, and I was coming back from some place, a movie or something.

I was on the subway and there was a girl sitting across from me and she was wearing this dress that was bottoned queer up right to here, she was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

And I was shy then, so when she would look at me I would look away, then afterwards when I would look back she would look away.

Then I got to where I was gonna get off, and got off, the doors closed, and as the train was pulling away she looked right at me and gave me the most incredible smile. It was awful, I wanted to tear the doors open.

And I went back every night, same time, for two weeks, but she never showed up.

That was 30 years ago and I don't think that theres a day that goes by that I don't think about her, I don't want that to happen again.

Just one dance ?.”
Jack Engelhard, Indecent Proposal

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
“When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!”
Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Don Quixote

Carlos Castaneda
“You have everything needed for the extravagant journey that is your life.”
Carlos Castaneda

“If you ever want something badly, let it go. If it comes back
to you, then its yours forever. If it doesnt, then it was never
yours to begin with.”
Jack Engelhard, Indecent Proposal
