“The biggest lie, the biggest deception of popular culture is the infantile notion that we can have it all.
We can’t-everything has a price.
Wealth almost always comes at a cost to family well-being.
Hurry erodes love.
Self-centeredness costs us in the loneliness it leaves behind, in the relationships we neglected to build because building them involved giving them our time.
The lesson of all of this is a tough one-we have to choose.
We have to sequence things.
We have to let some things go.
We have to give something up to get something more precious.”
