Quoted @AC360

You said "what punishment of gods are not gifts. Do you really believe that?" @andersoncooper, choking back tears, asks Stephen Colbert, as they discuss grief.

"Yes," replies the comedian. "It's a gift to exist and with existence comes suffering. There's no escaping that."

one of my favorite excerpts from my interview with @StephenAtHome. This question he embraces left me stunned when i first read it, and i can’t stop thinking about his answer. It has helped me, and i hope it helps others.

If this is to be our end, then I would have them make such an end, as to be worthy of remembrance.

"Walking the grounds of gratitude, I stumbled upon the palace of happiness."

What is appreciated not only multiplies, but is accompanied in increasing measure, by happiness and contentment.

I am not good with numbers. I am not one of the most creative minds in the room. But am efficient. I am committed. I work with all my heart and put my 100% in whatever I do. What I lack in talent, I make up for it with ethics. #wednesdaythought
