I may not have been sure about what really did interest me, but I was absolutely sure about what didn’t.
    —    Albert Camus
At 30 a man should know himself like the palm of his hand, know the exact number of his defects and qualities, know how far he can go, foretell his failures – be what he is.  And, above all, accept these things.
    —     Albert Camus
[Happy Birthday, son.  Listen to your heart and stay true to it…
Love Always,
    —    Mum and Dad]

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around.  But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.
    ––    Mark Twain (attributed to)
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.

Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.

I got a feeling I was born for a purpose.  I don’t know what I’m here for.  I just feel abnormal, a different kind of man.  I don’t know why I was born.  I’m just here.  A young man rumbling.  I’ve always had that feeling since I was a little boy.
    —    Muhammad Ali
[Happy Birthday, James!  Like your sisters, you were born to bring joy to the hearts of your Mum and me.  I’m sure you were born for other stuff, too, but the joy is all that matters to us.  We love you!    —    Mum and Dad]
