"What do you know now that you wish you had known earlier?"
"I wish I wouldn't have worked as hard and as many hours. I missed out on a lot of things. When I got sick, I lost everything, but having nothing is when I got more than I ever had in my life. I swear to God. I'm homeless, I have no car, but I never sleep in the street, and I always have a couple of dollars for beer every day. Having less is more, I'm telling you. The biggest thing in the world you can have is human connection. Without somebody else to live with, nobody would want to be here."
"It's not what people say— it's how you respond. A lot of times, we are reactionary. Sometimes we react the wrong way and wish that we could take it back."
"Never believe a liar."
"Take your time in finding a life partner. Don't let the sex cloud your judgment about a person, and don't rush into marriage. They should be your best friend over everything else."
"I'm 46 years old, and I have four daughters. My oldest daughter is 24, she just got married a year and a half ago, and she's making us grandparents. Yesterday I was down at the creek with my pregnant oldest daughter and my son-in-law. My second oldest daughter is 20, and her first boyfriend came with us for the first time and he's all nervous, right? I just kept finding myself looking around and thinking about how amazing this time of my life is. I kept reminding myself to slow down and enjoy it. When I think about when we were all younger, I wish that I had taken the time to enjoy a million other moments. There were so many moments when I was caught up on my phone or caught up on something else, you know? And now here's my daughter at 24 and pregnant, and it's just amazing."
"Enjoy life to the fullest while you can."
"At 25 years old, I wondered if I was doing the right thing with my life. After finishing undergrad and grad school in Pittsburgh, I looked at a paper map and decided I was going to move to San Francisco. This was before the days of Google Maps, and I had never been there. After living there for a while, I moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and then to New York, and then one day, I packed up my dog in my car and moved to Austin. Six months later, I'm at a bar with a friend who goes up to a man and says, "Hey, I think you need to meet my friend," pointing to me. He and I exchanged numbers, and I actually said, "Oh, I have to go now." I thought there was no way he was going to call me, but he did, and in January, it will be 12 years together. When I think about what I would tell my 25-year-old self right now, I would just tell her not to stress. Everything is going to be okay. Focus on putting one foot in front of the other one day at a time, and you'll be okay."
"Just keep riding. I’ve been riding since I was 18, and now I’m 70 years old. It gives me peace of mind when I’m on the road. I have to stay focused, and it gives me a sense of clarity. Nothing else matters when I’m on the road."
