A Quote To Live By

I watched the first few episodes of the award-winning HBO series Angels in America” and hated it (but I still love NetFlix for making is so darn available to me).

However, while I didn’t identify with any of the characters (except, potentially, the hot nurse/angel), I did really resonate with one of the quotes, which went something like this (and feel free to correct me if you recognize the quote and I got it wrong):

Don’t run your life by what you want. That changes with a whim. Run your life on what you believe.”

That really struck the Midwestern Eagle Scout idealist engineer in me.
