#quote from Me Before You ..... “I loved my life, Clark. Really loved it. I loved my job, my travels, the things I was. I loved being a physical person. I liked riding my motorbike, hurling myself off buildings. I liked crushing people in business deals. I liked having sex. Lots of sex. I led a big life.” Excerpt From: Moyes, Jojo. “Me Before You: A Novel.” ... “but to live boldly. Push yourself. Don’t settle.” “Just live well. Just live. Love, Will”
