Quote from a monk named brother Jeremiah. "Listen carefully. If I had my life to live over again, I would try to make more mistakes next time. I would relax. I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have ever been on this trip. I know very few things that I would take seriously next time around. I would take more trips. I would climb more mountains, swim more rivers, watch more sunsets. I would do more walking and more looking. I’d eat more ice cream and less bean. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones. You see, I am one of these people who live sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh, I have had my moments. If I had it to do over again, I would have more of them. In fact, I would try to have nothing else, just moments, one after the other, instead of living so many years ahead each day. I have been one of those people who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a gargle, a rain coat, aspirin and a parachute. If I had it to do over again, I would go places, I’d do things, I’d travel lighter than I ever have. If I had to do it over again, I would take a lot more risks."
