A dying friend once told me, ‘I wish I hadn’t spent so many Mondays wishing it were Friday. I also wish I had made better use of those Fridays, for better stories on Monday.’

It took only 5 years.
In less than 24 hours, I will no longer be in a long-distance relationship.
5 years later: we’re engaged, due to be married in less than 10 days, have an apartment we’ll be moving into at the beginning of next month, and I will never have to leave her again, and I’ll never have to take her to the airport like that again.
A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is…. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness. They have lived a sheltered life by always giving in.
