Things I am sure about.
People in my life.
That might sound pessimistic, yet, after reading countless biographies and observing the lives of generations of family, friends, and associates, it is simply realistic. Even the most accomplished politician, star, athlete, entrepreneur, or inventor has been (or will be) subject to the ravishes of time.
Once I have accepted this, I can live without drama.
The aim is to balance the terror of being alive with the wonder of being alive.
– Carlos Castaneda
