One man can change the world.

Through his children, culture, music, art, politics.

Live an important life, whatever this means to you.

Let them know,
We were here.

"A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it."

Must, bid the Morn awake!
Sad Winter now declines,
Each bird doth choose a mate;
This day's Saint Valentine's.
For that good bishop's sake
Get up and let us see
What beauty it shall be
That Fortune us assigns.

"Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody else expects of you. Never excuse yourself. Never pity yourself. Be a hard master to yourself – and be lenient to everybody else."

So, we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart be still as loving,
And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving,
And the day returns too soon,
Yet we'll go no more a-roving
By the light of the moon.

Be bold in expressing what your heart holds for someone. Pay no mind to risk of rejection or emotional vulnerability. If we love or yearn to love someone, we should not put our own gratification before that person. In a cold and impersonal world, those people need to know that they are regarded with favor and love.

Fearlessly share your love as a pure gift.

The worst thing that will happen is that person will know they are loved. That’s pretty damn good.

"I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I've lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment."
