“Get a life in which you notice the smell of salt water pushing itself on a breeze over the dunes, a life in which you stop and watch how a red-tailed hawk circles over a pond and a stand of pines. Get a life in which you pay attention to the baby as she scowls with concentration when she tries to pick up a Cheerio with her thumb and first finger. Turn off your cell phone. Turn off your regular phone, for that matter. Keep still. Be present. Get a life in which you are not alone. Find people you love, and who love you. And remember that love is not leisure, it is work.” -Anna Quindlen, A Short Guide to a Happy Life

"Love is not leisure, it is work." I LOVE THAT. Also, at first glance, I thought this quote was by Anna Quinlan and I was about to be super impressed with her writing skills. Ha.
