Something New

A really awesome quote, words to live by♥

words become superfluous

I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try.

I wish that I could take the credit for those words, or even for finding them in the first place, but the truth is I had never heard them before last Friday. My friend Arto (who is a fantastic writer even when he’s not cracking jokes, no matter what he tells you), used this quote in his tribute to legendary film critic Roger Ebert, who passed away recently.
