    There is no just about it!!

    I think I understand how you feel, and imagine it is like all the energy you poured into that story exploded around you on reading that email. You've taken your first huge step into the future.

    Just* remember us lesser mortals when you're doing the chat show circuit.





    *Three lines, two justs, one concerned Gavrushka.

And the only thing people regret is that they didn't live boldly enough, that they didn't invest enough heart, didn't love enough. Nothing else really counts at all. It was a saying about noble figures in old Irish poems—he would give his hawk to any man that asked for it, yet he loved his hawk better than men nowadays love their bride of tomorrow. He would mourn a dog with more grief than men nowadays mourn their fathers.

    And that's how we measure out our real respect for people—by the degree of feeling they can register, the voltage of life they can carry and tolerate—and enjoy.

    This is a total fossil and
    about as Faulkner derivative as you can be
    without getting arrested.

    My first hit, hope I'm not hooked.
