“Oh, I’ve had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them. In fact, I’d try to have nothing else. Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day”
Nadine Stair, 85 years old, quoted by Jon Kabat-Zinn
“Patience is a form of wisdom”
Jon Kabat-Zinn
