Since yesterday was the anniversary of Christopher Marlow's death (he was killed in a tavern brawl), I thought it might be nice to have a quote from him today. Marlow, if you're unfamiliar with him, was a playwright in Shakespeare's time who wrote The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus, Dido, and Tamburlaine, among others.
"Goodness is beauty in the best estate."
What a lovely quote. These words remind me of how much we need to forget about the negativity in life and spend our efforts on the positive. For example, how many times have you spent more time trying to figure out your toxic friend than you did hanging out with a good friend? How many times have you obsessed about why someone walked away from you rather than do something nice for a friend that is still around?
Friends are precious and we want every relationship to be the best it can be, however, sometimes it's nice just to appreciate the beauty that a good friendship provides.
