  • A great adventure

    The art of living, I’ve found, involves three things above all:

    The first is the capacity to look upon life as a great adventure, in the worst as well as the best of circumstances.

    The second is to recognize, and make the most of the fact, that life is a gamble. Sometimes luck is with you, sometimes it isn’t - the main thing is to persist and improve your hand.

    The third is, in every way you can, do good in the world. Do it with a smile, a funny story, money, a loving touch, a meaningful compliment, a job, a helping hand - but do it.
