I'm going to enjoy every second,
and I'm going to know I'm enjoying it while I'm enjoying it.
Most poeple don't live; they just race.
They are trying to reach some goal far away on the horizon,
and in the heat of the going, they get so breathless and panting
that they lose all sight of the beautiful, tranquil country they are passing through;
and then the first thing they know, they are old and worn out,
and it doesn't make any difference whether they've reached the goal or not.
I decided to sit down by the way and pile up a lot of little happinesses,
even if I never become a Great Author.
