I went to a yard sale today and the owner said something that changed the way I think: "My buddy owned this place. Found out he has pancreatic cancer, and realized that all this materialistic shit just doesn't matter. He left all this and got a boat to go on his last fishing trip. You see that?" He pointed at the sky. "That's all he needs right now. An open sky, some trees, and water. When you're ready to check out it's just not about this materialistic shit."
“We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a place where you won't do harm - yes, choose a place where you won't do very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.” ~ E.M. Forster
