  • The best a man can ever do

    That's all I've ever dreamed of. To make the world a better place. To bring some beauty to the drab humdrum corners of the soul. You can do it with a toaster, you can do it with a poem, you can do it by reaching out your hand to a stranger. It doesn't matter what form it takes. To leave the world a little better than you found it. That's the best a man can ever do.

  • That something

    I had jumped off the edge, and then, at the very last moment, something reached out and caught me in mid-air. That something is what I define as love. It is the one thing that can stop a man from falling, powerful enough to negate the laws of gravity.
