    This does reflect my philosophy on life . . .

    You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.

    Woodrow Wilson,
    28th US president
