|"What was the happiest moment of your life?"|
"Well, it’s not now."
Here are just a few examples form Humans of New York:
|"I just want to spend a few more years with my grandson."|
"Is there anything you want to teach him?"
"I leave that to his parents. I just want to be there."
|"When I was young, I thought I’d be in a rocking chair by now. But it’s not nearly as bad as I feared. My bones kind of ache on rainy days, but other than that, I like being 82."|
|"I left my third wife by putting a note on her pillow saying: ‘Gone to the store to get cigarettes. Be back in 5 minutes.’ That was twelve years ago and I haven’t been back yet. I don’t even smoke.|
|"I’m wearing really plain looking underwear."|
|"You know how most parents eventually get to the place where they say: ‘May not have been what I was hoping for, but this is who my kid is.’? Well, my dad never got there."|
|"I’m trying to keep the love going in my family." |
"How do you keep love going?"
"Love is a fragile thing. It will dissolve, so you have to recreate it everyday. Everyday you have to give your woman a new reason to love you."
