can cause us to neglect those friends.

we hope will call us "old friend" in the years to come.

they want to find someone to be "responsible" for what happened.

People sort themselves into groups
of happy people and unhappy people
through two different, but complementary mechanisms,

in this case by sharing my emotional outlook on life.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Those whom we can love, we can hate;

No matter how strong or clever,
Some one will sneer if you pause to hear,

And wherever you chance to hit it,
Though close be your aim to the bull's-eye fame,
There are those who will never admit it.

Look at this butterfly, so beautiful, so delicate.
I can enjoy this butterfly from a distance,

even away from the attentions of those
with whom they are most bonded.

such as helping those who are sick, impoverished, or unhappy.

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Obstacles are those frightful things
you see when you take your eyes off your goals.
- Henry Ford

My father and he had one of those English friendships
which begins by avoiding the intimacies
and eventually eliminates speech altogether.
- Jorge Luis Borges
