In hopes of a great 2005..

Life is not holding a good hand; Life is playing a poor
hand well.

Enjoyment is not a goal, it is a feeling that accompanies important
ongoing activity.

I come to the office each morning and stay for long hours doing what
has to be done to the best of my ability. And when you've
done the best you can you can't do any better.

Class is an aura of confidence that is being sure without being
cocky. Class has nothing to do with money. Class
never runs scared.

It is self-discipline and self-knowledge. It's the sure footedness
that comes with having proved you can meet life.

Nothing is ever lost by courtesy. It is the cheapest
of pleasures, costs nothing, and conveys much.

Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control. These three
alone lead to sovereign power.

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly,
acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still
know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
