    I can talk to anyone.
    Last time I saw him my best friend said this then said "but I mean it in the best way." Yeah, because it's great. I get it from my dad.

    I'm old enough to be ok with choosing my level of engagement. Even when that level is zero.
    I used to feel like I needed to be pals with everyone. I don't anymore. And I no longer feel bad cutting someone loose.

    A lady on a bike dropped a bag she was carrying in the middle of a busy intersection. Another person, who was on the sidewalk, waived her down and pointed it out. She also held the lady's bike out of traffic for her while the lady ran back to get her bag.
I don't have favorites but I love these every time I hear 'em.
