The last time I saw Ted Kennedy was a generation after my first meeting, at the Senate subway below the Capitol on Obama's Inauguration Day.

A note of caution: We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us. Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy. Because we are all unique, what makes another happy may do the opposite for you. That's why advice is nice but often disappointing when heeded.

Girls blush, sometimes, because they are alive, half wishing they were dead to save the shame. The sudden blush devours them, neck and brow; They have drawn too near the fire of life, like gnats, and flare up bodily, wings and all. What then? Who's sorry for a gnat or girl?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
My mother-in-law fell down a wishing well. I was amazed; I never knew they worked.
My life has changed. I'm not walking around any more wishing I wasn't me, which was the case at one time.
A man cannot become an atheist merely by wishing it.
When we get to wishing a great deal for ourselves, whatever we get soon turns into mere limitation and exclusion.
If you feel like there's something out there that you're supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it.
When Man evolved Pity, he did a queer thing - deprived himself of the power of living life as it is without wishing it to become something different.
Let us take things as we find them: let us not attempt to distort them into what they are not... We cannot make facts. All our wishing cannot change them. We must use them.
John Henry Newman
Chekhov is this poet of melancholy and isolation and of wishing you were somewhere else than where you are.
If I had rolled along with the strip's popularity and repeated myself for another five, 10 or 20 years, the people now 'grieving' for 'Calvin and Hobbes' would be wishing me dead.
