"I'm not telling you to make the world better, because I don't think that progress is necessarily part of the package.  I'm just telling you to live in it.  Not just endure it, not just suffer it, not just pass through it, but to live in it.  To look at it.  To try to get the picture.  To live recklessly.  To take chances.  To make your work and take pride in it.  To seize the moment.  And if should ask me why you should bother to do that, I could tell you that the grave's a fine and private place, but none I think do there embrace.  Nor do they sing there, or write, or argue, or see the tidal bore on the Amazon, or touch their children.  And that's what there is to do and get it while you can and good luck at it"
