The more you dwell on the past, wishing it weren't gone, the more damage you do to the good in the present until you can find no happiness at all, either in the past you regret or in the present you make unsatisfying.

"We enter the world alone, and we leave it alone. And everything that happens in between, we owe it to ourselves to find a little company. We need help. We need support. Otherwise, we’re in it by ourselves. Strangers, cut off from each other, and we forget… just how connected we all are. So instead, we choose love, we choose life, and for a moment, we feel just a little bit less alone."

"The moccoli, or moccoletti, are candles which vary in size from the pascal taper to the rushlight, and which cause the actors on the great scene which terminates the Carnival two different sources of thought: 1st. How to preserve their moccoletti alight; 2nd. How to extenguish the moccoletti of others. The moccoletti is like life: man has but one means of transmitting it, and that one comes from God. But he has discovered a thousand means of taking it away, although the devis has somewhat aided him."

Seize the day Jeff, for real. Go running naked in a hail storm, kiss a girl in the middle of the day, fly a kite...but do it for yourself, or you won't just fail my class, you'll fail life.

Meredith (narrating): We're all susceptible to it, the dread and anxiety of not knowing what's coming. It's pointless in the end, because all the worrying and the making of plans for things that could or could not happen, it only makes things worse. So walk your dog or take a nap. Just whatever you do, stop worrying. Because the only cure for paranoia is to be here, just as you are.
