is the greatest gift we can give to a person we love.
Nonetheless, the litmus test of love is knowing
we would choose never to see that person again
if we believed that distance would bring them greater happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Life is a journey. It is not a race to test

- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

and experience physical and emotional suffering
in ourselves, our family, and our friends.
