Thinking about Life and Love_Everett Wilson-From <i>A Thousand and One Things to Think About</i>.

Childhood is frustrating because none of us, including the children, know as much about it as we think we do.


Life defined as a training exercise for heaven is like defining your brain surgery as good experience for the surgeon.


If you want a good life, be a good person.


It's our business to live the good life because it's good, not because "it works."


Life is not an endless hike through the Red Sea, but a journey through the wilderness to the promised land.


We are required to live until we die.


To live well and die well are much the same.


If you do it right, marriage is the privilege of living with your best friend.


We have some freedom about how to live for others, but none at all about whether to live for others.


Homes are nourished by memories, but they are not made of memories.


Family, not home, is continuous.


Part of the sweetness in a friend’s advice is that you don’t have to take it.


The difference between sloth and depression is that sloth needs to be confessed and depression needs to be treated.


Most cars don't crash, most ships don't sink, and most people undergoing severe trial will still be around tomorrow.


It’s hard to be objective when there are tears in our eyes.


Utopianism assumes that the human race is wiser and nicer than it has ever demonstrated.


When something must be done, it’s no use explaining why nothing can be done.


You can do right all your life, and still not do any good.


Your value is not established by your self-esteem.


Nothing excuses us from doing the best we can with what we have.
