What can we learn from this?
1. Cancer will never beat courage.
Disease can infect a body, but it doesn’t have to afflict the soul.
“Cancer is a word, not a sentence,” John Diamond
2. Real Stars never fall
“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance.
To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try to understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget.
- Arundhati Roy
3. Live, Damn You!
“I really want Americans, and all of us, to be less afraid of death, and know that it’s a passage, but that – don’t go to the funeral before the day of the funeral.” ~Valerie Harper
