Life would be tragic if it weren't funny.
Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn't make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more.

Consistency is contrary to nature, contrary to life. The only completely consistent people are the dead.
There is no worse bitterness than to reach the end of your life and realized you have not lived.
