I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

they had to draw upon at the time.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Guilt says I've done something wrong;
... shame says there is something wrong with me.
Guilt says I've made a mistake;

Guilt says what did was not good;
... shame says I am no good.
- John Bradshaw

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
- A. A. Milne (Winnie-The-Pooh)

I had one thousand and sixty.

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships -
the ones that last -
are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.
You know, one day you look at the person
and you see something more than you did the night before.
Like a switch has been flicked somewhere.
And the person who was just a friend is...
suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.
- Dana Scully
