For those times when you’re feeling incompetent, ill at ease and generally mal dans sa peau, remember Henry Van Dyke‘s words:
Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there except those that sang best.
And for Nick. I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve lost the final battle in such a long and brave fight against cancer.
Time is …
Too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grieve,
Too short for those who rejoice,
But for those who love,
Time is Eternity.
– Henry van Dyke
