If we really wish to grow creatively, emotionally, intellectually, we must live in constant restart. We must embrace the unexpected, challenge ourselves to take risks, see the world differently, try new things and eat giant sandwiches. — Garrett Bryant

If we live in constant restart, we will find ourselves prepared for the unexpected, adaptable, grounded and inspired. We will grow, find deeper understanding, empathy, light, perspective, our better selves and love. — Garrett Bryant
