Thoughts from The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and Stories, by Marina Keegan.

“What we have to remember is that we can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over. Get a post-bac or try writing for the first time. The notion that it’s too late to do anything is comical. It’s hilarious. We’re graduating from college. We’re so young. We can’t, we MUST not lose this sense of possibility because in the end, it’s all we have.”
“I will live for love, and the rest will take care of itself.”

I love that last quote. If that isn’t a life motto, I don’t know what is. Marina Keegan, a fantastic writer whose life was cut short. She is an inspiration. Her accomplishments and perspective invite me to dream. This weekend, I hope you dream. Remember, “we can still do anything.” -GY
