"Live each day as if it’s your last’, that was the conventional advice,  but really, who had the energy for that? What if it rained or you felt a  bit glandy? It just wasn’t practical. Better by far to be good and  courageous and bold and to make difference. Not change the world  exactly, but the bit around you. Cherish your friends, stay true to your  principles, live passionately and fully and well. Experience new  things. Love and be loved, if you ever get the chance."
