An old friend was e-mailing me about the start of our relationship. He was trying to be polite. He wanted to imply I was indifferent, when in reality I had haaaaated him. He meant to type "ambivalent" and instead typed "You were ambiviolent." I thought it was on purpose and loved it.

The Party, after you left:
Roz Chast, the New Yorker cartoonist, has a cartoon by this name. Check it out.

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear. Except a creature be part coward it is not a compliment to say it is brave. - Mark Twain
You can’t pray a lie. - Mark Twain
The Venn diagram of boys who don’t like smart girls and boys you don’t want to date is a circle. – John Green
Omnia disce; postea videbis nihil ese superfluum
(Learn everything: later it will all be useful somehow)
You matter because you are you, and you matter to the last moment of your life. We will do all we can to not only help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die. – Dr. Cicely Saunders
The future will erase everything – there’s no level of fame or genius that allows you to transcend oblivion. The infinite future makes that kind of mattering impossible. But there’s another way. There are stories…maybe stories don’t just make us matter to each other – maybe they’re also the only way to the infinite mattering…– John Green, An Abundance of Katherines
