Mack's version: I know strength, because I've been weak. I know courage, because I've been afraid. I know wisdom, because I've been a fool. I know love, because I have lost it. I know life, because I have experienced all of these things. My hope is that when I come to know death, I will be considered strong, fearless, wise, and loved by those who knew my life.
"you're not gonna promise to each other that you will not disappoint one another, because at some point you will. what is important is you don't go away, you don't escape, you didn't leave one another just because you were disappointed. that's the meaning of fidelity."
