I Am the Awake and Aware Human Being

"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these."

-George Washington Carver

How far indeed.

I've been on both ends of a couple of other spectrums Mr Carver doesn't mention in his great quotable observation - wealth, love, et cetera.

Maybe the secret to this thing we've named 'happiness' is the simple acceptance of the fact that the world is going to keep on moving and whirling and changing whether you like it or not.

All you can do is improvise.
