There was another life that I might have had, but I am having this one.
- Kazuo Ishiguro, Conversations With Kazuo Ishiguro

I want to be famous in the way a pulley is famous,
or a buttonhole, not because it did anything spectacular,
but because it never forgot what it could do.

Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
