"Those people who engage in extreme sporting activity like motor racing, mountaineering, sky diving or base jumping love to live their lives on the edge. I have often thought that the sheer distance between experiencing exhilaration or extinction is so small that it's virtually immeasurable.
The distance between one unconnected thought and another is often no more than a small misunderstanding. The distance between the states of happiness and sadness can be as little as a smile and a held hand. The distance between the loving or hating of another is the willingness to care about their feelings.
Thus the distance between heaven and hell can be reduced to nothing more than an attempt to understand your fellow being along with a willingness to smile, hold their hand and care about their feelings." William Forde " February 21st, 2014.
