“I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it
seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that
you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things:
a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that
regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're
gone from your life. I've learned that making a living is not the same thing as
making a life. I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both
hands; you need to be able to throw some things back. I've learned that whenever
I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've
learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that
every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or
just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you
did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“When your road is so narrow you look at a deck of tarot cards and start wondering if they came from the pharaohs maybe we can cheat destiny's arrows with it's quiver full will make you quiver like a sinner who just realized his mistakes I wonder what's at stake. Is it just another make belief your brain uses to cope with life or is it only leaving you blind in your mind I guess nobody minds oh well it will be just fine let the time fly until it runs dry, who me? I'm just the Catcher in the rye.”
