To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common--this is my symphony.
~William Henry Channing

According to Sam

One of the things we love the most about Sam is that his brain just doesn't seem to work the same way ours do. he views it and how he processes it...has a unique twist.
Yesterday on a drive home Sam told Rob they had just passed the 'goner labels'. After a few questions and a look in the rear view mirror Rob realized they had just passed a local cemetery.
That's right, those grave markers aren't tombstones...they're 'goner labels.'
