It is always good to know, if only in passing, a charming human being; it refreshes our lives like flowers and woods and clear brooks.
So many people influence our lives. We are but an amalgamation of their traits and ideas -- both good and bad. What makes us us is the act of choosing which traits and ideas to internalize -- and the decision, moment by moment, whereby we exhibit those traits and ideas we wish to pass on to others. We create ourselves and others in each passing instant.
