*My children have given me the deepest loves, the most painful wounds, the greatest joys. I am a better person for having them, even though I am grayer and more tired than I would have been without them.
*Your first car is always remembered more kindly than it deserves, much like your first human love; your lust, your passion for it makes you overlook its flaws and failings.
It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. In this life we get nothing save by effort.
