Text written on one of the graduation cards I received in the mail yesterday:
"Have passion for life. Follow your instincts. Take a leap of faith. Collect wisdom. Discover what your heart is calling you to be... Become the kind of dreamer who makes his dreams come true. Congratulations and Best Wishes for your Future."
Text of the fortune cookie that came with my take-out sesame chicken last night:
"German proverb: no trees ever reach the sky."
