1. Move thousands of miles away from everyone you know and love
2. Delete your Facebook account
3. Lose your phone
These easy three steps will really help you separate the wheat from the chaff. In light of this, Sam Noonan has been a real pal (for the past two years and since I met her). Also, I think of her when I think of the following quote which I love, and which feels particularly relevant at the moment.
“Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone.
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in your own.”
– Adam Lindsay Gordon
The meaning of life is 42
My life’s meaning exists in you,
What a kind thing indeed to do
To make me feel this way: thank you.
It’s trite to say I wish you’d see
Yourself as you appear to me,
But part of how I love you so
Is my desire to let you know:
The storms that rage inside your brain
Are nothing more than April rain.
If you e’er feel you aren’t worthwhile
Then let this thought be chamomile:
If life’s meaning is hard to see,
Recall the peace you give to me.
