Quotes from Lonesome Dove
If you want one thing too much it’s likely to be a disappointment. The healthy way is to learn to like the everyday things.
Yesterday’s gone on down the river and you can’t get it back.
The older the violin, the sweeter the music.
The hardest thing on earth is choosing what matters.
