I cried when my goldfish died, nothing wrong with that! They're living creatures, too, and we still love 'em even if they have fins and scales!
"We are--each of us--dying; it's how we live in the meantime that makes the difference."
"It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived!"
"Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle."
