"We know when we're kids or even when we're old, we know what hurts us and we know what makes us joyful... Seize it. Get that. Get that emotion. Write that down because - 'oh, I'll remember' - no you won't... All these little moments go by and if we don't grab them we miss it. And we have to attach significance to them."
—Frank McCourt, PBS Scout Dialogue Interview, 2002.
