2: This Mixbook is dedicated to the man who had at times both strained and expanded my life; Terry Stouffer. As my track coach, Coach Stouffer has done many things for me. From the qigongs he's enforced to the grueling daily workouts, these bonding experiences have made Terrance Stouffer a good friend of mine. Terry Stouffer (An Ode in the form of an Irregular Limerick) Oh, the things that make you the coach that you are From your forgotten thoughts to your Tony Hawk shorts The expensive stopwatch around your neck The all-plastic watch sliding up and down your wrist While these things don't always describe a friend, they describe you... The countless hours you spend every week, to insure success Your stories, teachings; always valued, enjoyed by all Your instruction, pushing us farther into wonderment Thank you for continuing coaching enough to coach me

3: "That's me. I'm still your coach (35)." -- Morrie Schwartz Tuesdays with Morrie

4: "It's not too late to develop new friendships or reconnect with people (73)." -- Morrie Schwartz Tuesdays with Morrie | Where did you wash? the boy thought. The village water ... supply was two streets down the road. I must have water here for him, the boy thought, and soap and a good towel. Why am I so thoughtless? I must get him another shirt and a jacket for the winter and some sort of shoes and another blanket. -- Ernest Hemingway The Old Man and the Sea

6: "Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival." -- C.S. Lewis | The Miracle of Friendship There is a miracle called Friendship that dwells within the heart and you don't know how it happens or when it even starts. But the happiness it brings you always gives a special lift and you realize that Friendship is God's most precious gift. Jean Kyler McManus

7: "You've got a friend in me." -- Randy Newman (You've Got a Friend in Me) | You've Got a Friend in Me Michael Quinlan You've got a friend in me. Like friendship, it may sound simple But, in many ways, it's impact is much more A friend who is there for all occasions The good, the bad, the happy, the sad Someone everyone strives to be But is made by the receiver A simple friend that you've got in me

8: I Should Not Dare I should not dare to leave my friend, Because if he should die While I was gone and I -too late, Should reach the heart that wanted me, If I should disappoint the eyes That hunted, hunted so, to see And could not bear to shut until He noticed me, -he noticed me, If I should stab the patient faith So sure I'd come -so sure I'd come It listening, listening went to sleep Reciting my tardy name. My heart would wish it broke before Since breaking then, since breaking then, Is useless as next morning's sun To erase a midnight's tear. Emily Dickinson | “One day, I’m gonna show you it’s okay to cry (51).” -- Morrie Schwartz Tuesdays with Morrie

9: "The best time to make friends is before you need them." -- Ethel Barrymore | “I may be dying, but I am surrounded by loving, caring souls. How many people can say that (36)?” -- Morrie Schwartz Tuesdays with Morrie

10: "Perhaps this is one reason I was drawn to Morrie. He let me be where my brother would not (97)." Mitch Albom Tuesdays with Morrie

11: “Love is when you are as concerned about someone else’s situation as you are about your own (178).” -- Morrie Schwartz Tuesdays with Morrie
