Quotes

In recognizing the humanity of our fellow beings, we pay ourselves the highest tribute.

None of us got where we are solely by pulling ourselves up by our bootstraps. We got here because somebody – a parent, a teacher, an Ivy League crony or a few nuns – bent down and helped us pick up our boots.

I have a lifetime appointment and I intend to serve it. I expect to die at 110, shot by a jealous husband.
