We're all on a journey. Each one of us. And if we can we be sensitive to the person who happens to be our neighbor, that to me is the greatest challenge as well as the greatest pleasure. Because, if you're trusted, and people will allow you to share their inner garden with them, what greater gift? – Fred Rogers - 1997 Daytime Emmy Awards
I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no "brief candle" for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations. – George Bernard Shaw - A Splendid Torch (1896)
A thank you is in order to the late Adrianne Wadewitz, a great colleague of mine who told me what year this was created. May she rest in peace.
