News is the first rough draft of history.” ~ Philip Graham

As a former journalist who still dabbles in freelance, the above has always been one of my favorite quotes. However, if Phil Graham were around today, I think he’d agree that blogging has surpassed traditional news outlets as “the first rough draft”.

The quote also alludes to the fact that life itself is a rough draft. We don’t get a second chance to go back and edit our past, we can only move forward and continue making new decisions and choosing new paths.
