Disillusioned, I was disenchanted
Forgot the love that had been implanted
Heard the lies and I felt the cold
It broke my heart and I lost control
– Depeche Mode
I could hear my heart beating. I could hear everyone’s heart. I could hear the human noise we sat there making, not one of us moving, not even when the room went dark.
– Raymond Carver
I love money. I love everything about it. I bought some pretty good stuff. Got me a $300 pair of socks. Got a fur sink. An electric dog polisher. A gasoline powered turtleneck sweater. And, of course, I bought some dumb stuff, too.

I am alone & will find my way alone.”

At some point in our lives, we can feel worthless. Especially when everything we set out to do doesn’t come to pass. Though it is never a wise idea to equate ability with self-worth, most of us are guilty. In the end, you realize it’s not what you do that makes you valuable but the person you are inside. That is the best legacy anyone can leave behind.
