[Quote No.50168] Need Area: Work > General
"[Vocation and career:] Donít ever confuse the two, your life and your work. Thatís what I have to say. The second is only a part of the first. [Don't lose the richness of a full life, where all your needs are catered for and balanced, where only work needs are satisfied.] Donít ever forget what a friend once wrote to Senator Paul Tsongas when the senator had decided not to run for re-election because heíd been diagnosed with cancer: 'No man ever said on his deathbed I wish I had spent more time at the office.' ... [Also] You cannot be really first-rate at your work if your work is all you are. So I suppose the best piece of advice I could give anyone is pretty simple: get a life. A real [rich, full] life, not [just] a manic pursuit of the next promotion, the bigger pay-check, the larger house. Do you think youíd care so very much about those things if you developed an aneurysm one afternoon, or found a lump in your breast while in the shower? Get a life in which you notice the smell of salt water pushing itself on a breeze over the dunes, a life in which you stop and watch how a red-tailed hawk circles over a pond and a stand of pines. Get a life in which you pay attention to the baby as she scowls with concentration when she tries to pick up a Cheerio with her thumb and first finger... [etc. Get a full life!] " - Anna Quindlen

[Quote No.40057] Need Area: Friends > Children
"Raising children is a spur-of-the-moment, seat-of-the-pants sort of deal, as any parent knows, particularly after an adult child says that his most searing memory consists of an offhand comment in the car on the way to second grade that the parent cannot even dimly recall." - Anna Quindlen

[Quote No.49484] Need Area: Fun > Gratitude
"[Why are we not overflowing with gratitude that each and every experience is not worse?] ...realize that life is glorious, and that you have no business taking it for granted. ... It is so easy to waste our lives: our days, our hours, our minutes. It is so easy to take for granted the pale new growth on an evergreen, the sheen of the limestone on Fifth Avenue, the color of our kidsí eyes, the way the melody in a symphony rises and falls and disappears and rises again. It is so easy to exist instead of live. Unless you know there is a clock ticking. ... Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of gray cement. It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that wonít happen. We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live [in gratitude for them and our lives]. ... Consider the lilies of the field. Look at the fuzz on a babyís ear. Read in the backyard with the sun on your face. Learn to be happy. And think of life as a terminal illness [which will be gone before you know it], because, if you do, you will live it with [exquisite gratitude] joy and passion, as it ought to be lived. " - Anna Quindlen

[Quote No.9983] Need Area: Fun > General
"Down time is where we become ourselves, looking into the middle distance, kicking at the curb, lying on the grass or sitting on the stoop and staring at the tedious blue of the summer sky. I don't believe you can write poetry, or compose music, or become an actor without downtime, and plenty of it, a hiatus that passes for boredom but is really the quiet moving of the wheels inside that fuel creativity.
