“One time, I was in Florida waiting for a bus late at night and this really old woman was sitting next to me so we started talking. She had the foulest mouth of anybody I’ve ever met. Her bus came before mine, and she got up and said, ‘Well, you are wonderful. Just remember this and your life will be grand: Love many, trust few, and row your own boat.’”
