    Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that's the stuff life is made of.

    In every person who comes near you look for what is good and strong;
    honor that; try to imitate it, and your faults will drop off like dead leaves
    when their time comes.

    -- -- John Ruskin

    But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.

    Special Olympics athletes are spokespersons for freedom itself - they ask for the freedom to live, the freedom to belong, the freedom to contribute, the freedom to have a chance. And, of all the values that unite and inspire us to seek a better world, no value holds a higher place than the value of freedom."
    Eunice Kennedy Shriver

    A professional is someone who can do his best work when he doesn't feel like it.

    "With enormous conviction and unrelenting effort, Eunice Kennedy Shriver has labored on behalf of America's least powerful people, those with mental retardation. Over the last two decades, she has been at the forefront of numerous initiatives on behalf of the mentally retarded, from creating day camps, to establishing research centers, to the founding of the Special Olympics program. Her decency and goodness have touched the lives of many, and Eunice Kennedy Shriver deserves America's praise, gratitude and love."--
    President Ronald Reagan awarding Mrs. Shriver the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor

    RIP Eunice Shriver

    Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to the end, requires some of the same courage which a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men to win them.
