In August of last year, I invited readers to "Make Your Own Thought," posting a collection of quotes with the last word left out. I supplied my own preferred completions in the comments section. For the record, I'd like to bring the completed thoughts together here.
"Always carry with you a little reasonable doubt, should you meet someone who needs to be found innocent."
"Let us learn humility from the sun, which, in all its glory, will yet give anyone the time of day."
"I remember this from childhood: that when I had done something to earn my parents' respect, I didn't want their unconditional love."
"Try to do something each day that you would do if you didn't think it was too late."
"A senseless tragedy remains forever tragic, but it's up to us whether it remains forever senseless.
"Of the Seven Deadly Sins, Sloth is the only one I still have energy for."
"How do you know you died? Well, I guess you start meeting people you thought were dead."
"Having completed most of the book of life, I can tell you that the answers are not in the back."
"How often we overlook the happiness in our lives that it is not yet a memory."
"Who would not be a little dishonest if there were such a thing as a little dishonesty."
"I have made choices in life that would have been wise indeed had they been choices."
"As important as penciling in each day a new page of your life story is to go over some previous page in ink."
