Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more. – Nikola Tesla

Appreciate what you have been given

I’ve just been asked to reset an account password on a computer used by a faculty member who recently passed away. It was a strange feeling to see this individual a week ago and now she’s gone. Her office was filled with papers, assignments and books she was working on. It’s a sobering experience and makes you pause a bit, realize that most things we get upset over are really not that serious.

Cherish your lives and lives of those around you. You never know how much of them is left and what you have in front of you.
