There were never any "good old days" — they are today, they are tomorrow
One of my favorite quotes

oh! the pretty!
We do not bury a flower to get another flower. We do not expect happiness to grow from happiness -- only complication grows from happiness. We bury a bulb to get a flower. We take the ugliest part of our lives, the diseased yams and scarred flesh and broken dreams, and we throw them into a pit, taking care to pay attention to every step, and then we wait out the winter.

And then, against all logic: dumb old daffodils, with their eternal message: "You did your best. That's the important thing."

— Jon Carroll, 12/30/1997

This is one of my favorite quotes but for the longest time my search-fu was failing me. I'm very glad to have found it again.

Jon Carroll was great. When I subscribed, even though half of my Sunday papers were stolen (the important ones with the coupons!), he was fun to read.
