“It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done. It is a far, far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.”
—Sydney Carton, a Tale of Two Cities (Charles Dickens)


It’s the small things, really. The small things that made the world change and the oceans churn and time tick. The small things that control tears and smoke and the movement of cars. It is the small things that save lives.

A hug.

A single comment on worth.

A single moment saying thank you.

Two words, well done.


It takes no words to lose a life.

 


Say yes. Go for it. Live fast. Laugh. Make this moment last.

Say yes, figure it out later.

Say yes, if you want something, go for it.

Say yes, do what you enjoy.

Say yes, stray off the beaten path.

Say yes, live with passion.

Say yes.


Say no.

Say no, go to college.

Say no, make money.

Say no, live content.

Say no, focus on your studies.

Say no, look to the long term.

Say no, get a steady, well-paying job.


After all, how many stories get told?
