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

A person is smart. People are dumb,

and fifteen minutes ago,
you knew that humans were alone on this planet.
Imagine what you'll know tomorrow.
- the movie Men in Black

Love one another but make not a bond of love.
Let it rather be a moving sea
between the shores of your souls.

as he advances through life,
he will soon find himself alone.

This life is what you make it.
Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes,

Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway.

Don't let go of them.
Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world.
