“The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers
at your feet, duties at your hand, the path or right just before you. Then do not grasp
at the stars, but do life’s plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and
daily bread are the sweetest things in life.”

–Robert Louis Stevenson
