I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show any human being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Etienne de Grellet - Quaker Missionary

As an atheist and a humanist, this is all that I aspire to do.

When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
  • books
  • unexpected kindness in strangers
  • the rest of the world to travel
  • languages to learn
  • animals to take care of
  • volunteer work to do
  • the power of a good night’s rest
  • the changing of seasons
  • infinite things to learn
  • billions of people to meet and possibly love
  • billions of people who might love you back

Needed this today
