“So you want to hear a story? Well, I used to know a whole lot of pretty interesting ones.
Some of them so funny you’d laugh yourself unconscious. Others so terrible you’d never
want to repeat them. But I can’t remember any of those, so I’ll just tell you about the
time I found that lost thing…”
The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks,
the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically,
their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.
