“Find out what makes you kinder, what opens you up and brings out the most loving, generous, and unafraid version of you—and go after those things as if nothing else matters. Because, actually, nothing else does.”
“Figure out what you love to do, then figure out how to get paid to do it.” "Technically, we're all half centaur." “No matter how you decide to spend a little more time on your gestures of giving, the point is just quite simply that you do.”
“Always maintain the attitude of a student. When a person thinks they have finished learning, that is when bitterness and disappointment can set in, as that person will wake up everyday wondering when someone is going to throw a parade in their honour for being so smart.”
“The older I get, the more my parents just seem like absolute heroes to me.”

"The best way to garden is to put on a wide-brimmed straw hat and some old clothes.  And with a hoe in one hand and a cold drink in the other, tell somebody else where to dig."

I love formal gardens, Joe, but Oregon isn't exactly rich in them. There is a nice one within about an eighty minute drive from here (Oregon Garden it's called), but it was only started in 2002, so it's nothing like the old ones I remember from my many years in the Deep South.

You're a vigorous, strong looking fellow, you know, the kind I always envied. You look like you're probably big-boned, and that should protect you somewhat from bone and joint problems. I'm medium-boned, and when I started college, I was 5'10" and weighed a 115 pounds. As you might imagine, I hated being that way, but by the time I was 30, I had gotten up to 160 and stayed there for much of my adult life. I used to work out, and I got as high as 185 for a short time and looked damned good if I do say so myself. Now, I weigh 175, and it's not muscle either. Meanwhile, I've shrunk to 5'10".
