"Illegitimi non carborundum."
(Don't let the bastards grind you down.)
My best friend's grandmother, who recently passed away, kept many things in her personal treasure box but this was the only quote that appeared twice.
Nana, you were loved and you will be missed.
My heart goes out to my best, best friend and her family. At times like this, I wish more than ever I was in New York just to hug you all.
