If we worry or fret about the section we didn’t get, or grumble about the one we got, our short segments will be over and we will not have even realized it.” (Page 80)

 “Sure, I have missed a lot of things I would have experienced down there, but I would not trade the things I have gained. Besides, an experience is never wasted if you learn from it, and no lessons are free of cost.” (Page 80)

 “The main conclusion I have drawn is the only things of lasting value, besides the necessities of survival, are those things which affect the lives of others. Those things which cause others to evaluate their perspectives and change them as needed.” (Page 147)

 “Stewart remembered what Michael taught him. Michael said, ‘Believe your dreams, trust your instincts, and doubt your fears.’” (Page 169)
