Love Can Be...

"Love can be a conversation about nothing, or it can be a quiet comfort in each other's presence that is about everything."

"I like to walk the beach at either end of the day, when the sun is on the horizon, because the couples you pass are always in love."

"Sometimes it's fate, and sometimes it's just two people who sought the same quiet corner in the same noisy room."

Love story: "She was a walker in the sand, a stroller in the rain, a frequenter of places where nobody goes -- and they kept meeting."

"It is sad to complicate a simple thing, but it is sadder to lose a simple thing because you were unwilling to complicate it."

My Advice?

"My advice?  Learn to judge your actions on what you knew at the time -- or else learn to act at the time on what you know now."

"There are storms in any relationship, not usually indicative of climate change."

"If there's one accusation I'm guilty of, and happily so, it is that there are people I'm protecting.

"Me, I'm not a person who goes around with an entourage, although if I had an entourage, I would probably go around with it."

"If I have one regret, it's that I'll never know what I might have accomplished if I had been briefed every morning by a team of advisors."

"We learn by doing, and what we usually learn is not to do it again."

Only In Love...

"Only in love can you get blindsided by something you saw coming."

"Act, even though you judge it hopeless, for you have a greater ability to act than to judge hopelessness."

"A good part of courage is just being sick and tired."

"One difference between good and evil is that evil, when challenged, does not suspend its principles."

Words most likely to be heard at the Last Judgment:                      "You did WHAT in my name?"

Who Most Of Us Are.

"There is much that one person can do, and fortunately that is who most of us are."

"Before you recite the reasons why you can't, try to imagine them as the reasons why you didn't."

"I've learned that just standing there with a silly look on your face is better than uttering words to that effect."

"It's good, occasionally, to re-examine the likelihood that you were born into a world where nothing is any of your business."

"It is hard not to be irritated by people who act innocent just because they're not guilty of anything."

"Whether you dream big or small, it's important occasionally to dream real."

So Often The Answer

"A dog is so often the answer -- when you're lonely and need company, or when you're tired of company and need lonely."
