Here's your sign
I say this quote all the time! Love the book/movie "Into the Wild" and love Leo Tolstoy who originally said it
Norman Cousins (who wrote "Anatomy of an Illness) was diagnosed with a terminal disease. He got over it by looking at funny movies from his hospital bed, and lived many years longer. He eventually died of an unrelated illness.
They are both excruciating, it's easier to be alone... :)
no act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted
