Knowing the World and Our Fellow Travelers

The problem, often not discovered until late in life, is that when you look for things in life like love, meaning, motivation, it implies they are sitting behind a tree or under a rock. The most successful people in life recognize, that in life they create their own love, they manufacture their own meaning, they generate their own motivation. For me, I am driven by two main philosophies, know more today about the world than I knew yesterday. And lessen the suffering of others. You’d be surprised how far that gets you.
Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, American astrophysicist

Hi Cate

I loved the quote, it expressed a lot that I have tried to learn and remember over the years.

All the best.

It speaks to me of meeting and loving
people where they are... And, knowing
that we *are* this love that we are
looking for - recognizing it within
ourselves...

And what an exquisite photo!!!
