“You don’t go into the playoffs saying we’ve got to win 16. You say we have to win 1 Game. That’s no different now.”
– Brian Boyle
On the streets of New York City…
“We’ve been friends since we were 13.”
“What’s the most fun you’ve ever had together?”
“Oh, we don’t know…”
“Well, what’s the hardest you’ve ever laughed together?”
“Now you listen here! I want you to write down these questions you’re asking us, pull them out when you’re 85 years old, and see if you can answer them yourself!”

At Arlington, the prince placed a wreath of flowers at one grave with a handwritten message on a monogrammed card:
To my comrades-in-arms of the United States of America, who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the cause of freedom.

Humans of New York!
If you have a passion for New York City, you may want to check out the Humans of New York art project on Tumblr.
Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind the amazing project, has been walking the streets of New York for hours every day, interviewing and taking pictures from strangers on the city’s streets. The portraits would then be published on the blog, coupled with a brief quote from (or about) the person.
Here is a recent post:
“It’s a landscape architect’s job to pay attention to the things nobody else notices: the placement of benches, the way a rail curves around a tree, everything…”
“Why are those things important if nobody notices?”
“Because there’s an intrinsic feeling to being in balance.”
