"You can't have a damn thing."
I have Frances Long to thank for this quote. I'm not sure where she picked it up. Hold everything in life with an open hand. Open hands can easily accept new things and let go of old because they are never really holding anything. A dog may chew through a brand new dress. A child might rub lipstick all over the carpet. A student might eat the very last bite of a beloved package of muddy buddies. Nothing in this world was ever meant to me mine. Hold it with open hands.
