Favorite quote: "To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one's self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, a redeemed social connection; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and exaltation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived... this is to have succeeded." — Ralph Waldo Emerson
