“Family and friendships are two of the greatest facilitators of happiness.”
"The only rock I know that stays steady, the only institution I know that works, is the family."
"A family is a risky venture, because the greater the love, the greater the loss... That's the trade-off. But I'll take it all."
"You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth."
"A happy family is but an earlier heaven"
It takes many good deeds to build a good reputation, and only one bad one to lose it.
In what terms should we think of these beings, nonhuman yet possessing so very many human-like characteristics? How should we treat them? Surely we should treat them with the same consideration and kindness as we show to other humans; and as we recognize human rights, so too should we recognize the rights of the great apes? Yes.
You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
We have the choice to use the gift of our life to make the world a better place--or not to bother”

I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.
May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.
Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you. And sometimes, when you fall, you fly.
