"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life
are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations,
the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are

stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
Our lives are measured by these."

with respect to the past, and to make it at home in the world.
In this sense, it prepares each generation for life."
Virgil M. Hancher
