    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    It's too bad he wasn't able to control his extra-marital desires. Although I agree with most of what he says, I don't understand the remark about libertarianism masquerading as capitalism (they are different how?), especially where he doesn't define capitalism.
