Happiness is not about what happens to you, but how you choose to respond to what happens. That's why it's called happiness not happenness - though it could be called hope-ness. You must always leave room for hope that all has happened for good cause.
- Best Man
I am dismissive of the virtuous, unaware of the beautiful, and uncomprehending in the face of the happy. So if I didn't understand I was being asked to be the best man, it is because I never expected to be anybody's best friend, and certainly not the best friend of the bravest and kindest and wisest human being I have ever had the good fortune of knowing.
