"No changing of place at a hundred miles an hour will make us one whit stronger, or happier, or wiser. There was always more in the world than man could see, walked they ever so slowly; they will see it no better for going fast. The really precious things are thought and sight, not pace. It does a bullet no good to go fast; and a man, if he be truly a man, no harm to go slow; for his glory is not at all in going, but in being." (John Ruskin)
We spent four hours at the coffee shop, working side-by-side. A small family's drama unfolded at the table beside us, and I listened quietly....trying to figure out who the players were, and how their story is different from ours.
