β€œDo not let yourself be bothered by the inconsequential.

 

One has only so much time in this world,

so devote it to the work and the people most important to you,

to those you love and things that matter.

 

One can waste half a lifetime with people one doesn’t really like,

or doing things when one would be better off somewhere else.”

 

[ Louis L’Amour Ride the River ]

  1. From what you said about how proud WFK was when he passed the bar, it sounds like he lived up to this quote. It is a great quote and an excellent model for living.

    • You are right! I kept thinking about what a waste of time it was for him to spend his last years stuck in a stuffy library while all his friends had moved on and were pursuing their careers and living their lives. I felt sorry for him because I felt like he had missed out on so much living.

      But I think you are spot on – to him – he was pursuing his dream and he did find love about a year ago. So he WAS doing what mattered to him and spending his time with the people he loved.

      Weirdly, this makes me feel a lot better – Thank you. πŸ™‚
