"I once believed that life was a gift. I thought whatever I wanted I would someday possess. Is that greed, or only youth? Is it hope or stupidity?"

Love that! I've read one other book by her...everything she writes is thought-provoking! But this sentence...life IS a gift. It's also a miracle ~ I'm living proof in a couple of ways so I try to not take it for granted.

Great beginning there...and definitely thought provoking. I prefer to think it is a gift. ^_^
