Life is a process by which, one by one, the trophies on your mantel are replaced by pictures of the grandkids.
I've come to believe that you win at life by quietly accumulating the most consolation prizes.
It's a tough mindset to change -- that nothing can be worth anything unless you beat someone to it.
Never be discouraged by the opinion of people who don't know what you're about to accomplish.
If only regret had action's purpose. If only action had regret's information.
It takes no skill to belittle people -- to scoff at their harmless pretenses and strip them of their all-too-transparent masks. It takes only a greater pretense and a more subtle mask.
