Contents: Paradox governs our lives --
Much of what we think we know is untrue --
Forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves --
Marriage ruins a lot of good relationships --
It is easier to be angry than sad --
Action is eloquence --
It is better to be spent than saved --
If you have anything to say, say it now, for the eternal silence is at hand --
We are defined by what we fear --
The best stepparents do the least parenting --
One of life's most difficult tasks is to see ourselves as others see us --
Moral certainty is the reward of the true believer --
Relinquish dignity last --
Though much is taken, much abides --
The important questions are unanswerable --
Attachment is the source of all suffering --
We all live downstream --
You can change who you are without rejecting who you were --
It is a sense of meaning that nourishes the soul --
We were not meant to live alone --
The primary difference between intelligence and stupidity is that there are limits to intelligence --
The ears are the primary organs of seduction --
No one ever died of insomnia --
Heroism is in the eye of the beholder --
We are all capable of anything --
We are drowning in information but starved for knowledge --
Happiness requires an ability to tolerate uncertainty --
As we grow old, the beauty steals inward --
Every snowflake in an avalanche pleads not guilty --
Most people die with their music still inside them.
Responsibility: Gordon Livingston.
