But who can say what’s best? That’s why you need to grab whatever chance you have of happiness where you find it, and not worry about other people too much. My experience tells me that we get no more than two or three such chances in a life time, and if we let them go, we regret it for the rest of our lives.

Something hilariously awesome took place in Cincinnati, Ohio on Friday, September 20th: the 2013 Hillshire Farm Running of the Wieners. 100 energetic dachshunds dressed in hot dog bun costumes (complete with plush ketchup and mustard) ran their hearts out in the race at Fountain Square. This annual race is the official opening event for Oktoberfest-Zinzinnati.

This year’s winners were Mitzi (1st), Buster (2nd), and Dunn (3rd). But one look at the photos makes it clear that every single competitor was a champion.

Failure is a process … you have to fail over and over and over again to get anything that’s worthwhile.

Stories never really end…even if the books like to pretend they do. Stories always go on. They don’t end on the last page, any more than they begin on the first page.
