“What I regret most in my life are failures of kindness.”

Well, when you put it that way…

“I think and hope that’s what my daughters can take from my disease and death. And that my wonderful, amazing wife Airdrie can see too. Not that they could die any day, but that they should pursue what they enjoy, and what stimulates their minds, as much as possible—so they can be ready for opportunities, as well as not disappointed when things go sideways, as they inevitably do.”
“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”
— Plato
“We should laugh before being happy, for fear of dying without having laughed.”
— JEAN DE LA BRUYÈRE, 17th-century French essayist
“Ready? Sure? Whatever the situation or secret moment, enjoy everything a lot. Feel able to absolutely care. Expect nothing else. Keep making love. Family and friends matter. The world is life, fun and energy. Maybe hard. Or easy. Taking exactly enough is best. Help and talk to others. Change your mind and a better mood comes along…”
“I honestly think it is better to be a failure at something you love than to be a success at something you hate.”
“I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes everything, even nature.”
— John D. Rockefeller
