"By doing, I learn what to do. By going, I learn where to go. One day, by dying, I'll learn how to die..." and until then I hope to simply live, learn and love.

Anon...hahahaha, a classic line from Odd Thomas, I believe.

SisterSing...I'm pretty good at laughing at my mistakes, so laughter kinda falls naturally into the living, learning, loving thing for me ;) ILYSVM!

Those are some beautiful words!

Mel...Hahaha, yes Dean Koontz, an author which reminds many of Stephen King. I actually have found his Odd Thomas books to be full of great little one to two sentence chunks of wisdom...

Orhan...Some people look at life and wonder what their purpose is, as in what one great and significant reason are they here. Hahaha, i look at mine as having lots of tiny, little, sometimes seemingly insignificant reasons. I think they are called 'moments.' ;)

Oceans...sometimes those feet walk right out into that river. Toes and nose facing the sun, I just float. :)
