Great quote, Cindy. And how true it is! I also love the line "Don't confuse me with the facts."

"When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability... To be alive is to be vulnerable."
Madeleine L'Engle (1918 - ), "Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art", 1980

"What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset." - Blackfoot
