In one of his final interviews, the author/philosopher Aldous Huxley was asked to sum up his life's work. What he said was this: It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one's life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than "Try to be a little kinder." While I actually think that's beautiful in and of itself, I also love the question. If you had to sum up everything you've learned about life in one or two sentences, what would they be?
