"It’s amazing, some people, they just say these small little things, one sentence and it changes the way you feel about them in an instant.

"Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep really sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough."
— William Saroyan
