"Death teaches us - if we want to hear - that the time is now. The time is now to pick up a telephone and call the person that you love. Death teaches us the joy of the moment. It teaches us we don't have forever. It teaches us that nothing is permanent. It teaches us to let go, there's nothing you can hang on to. And it tells us to give up expectations and let tomorrow tell its own story, because nobody knows if they'll get home tonight. To me that's a tremendous challenge. Death says 'live now.' Let's tell the children that."
-Leo Buscaglia, Living, Loving & Learning
