It was years later, when I was a practicing doctor, single again, but this time with a new baby, that Mark Petrello made his difference in my life. At that earlier time, I [...]

"I am filled with what can only be described as relief. Relief that I got to this place, that this is my life." - Love the One You're With by Emily Giffin

"I am nothing special; of this I am sure. I am a common man, with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.

“‘Well, there’s two kinds of peeing,’ he said.  ‘There’s regular peeing, because you have to pee.  And then there’s auxiliary competitive peeing.  For acquiring an empire.  I’m all about the real estate.'” – Walking in Circles Before Lying Down by Merrill Markoe

“‘As a language purist, I can’t bring myself to say ‘grande latte,’ knowing that the rest of my sentence is going to be in English.'” – Walking in Circles Before Lying Down by Merrill Markoe
