Every quote is just something someone said once. Everyone is on equal ground… what makes one person great, another person mean, and another average, and so on? Why do we mourn for people we’ve never met? Is it for their loss, or ours? Why did I cry when I heard about John Candy’s death, and yet felt only a small twinge of regret for not knowing her when I was told that my great-aunt had passed away? Why is it that we mourn death rather than celebrate life?
