Actually, this is more like "Quote of the Day" today, but after writing Heroes it's what I'm in the mood for. God that episode was depressing.

"Dance As
If No One
Were Watching

Sing As If No
One Were Listening

And Live Every Day
AS IF It Were
Your Last."

---Irish Proverb

An Irish Blessing

May the road rise to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.
