Love and Serenity
i really like the movie "Serenity," and i've never seen "Firefly," the TV show it spun from, so i'm a loser. but anyway, Mal, the captain of the ship, says something important about how to fly what he calls a "boat," which is, a starship:
"Love. You can know all the math in the 'Verse, but take a boat in the air you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens. Makes her home."
so, that's my vote for the day: Love, that keeps us in the air when we oughta fall down.
