Favorite quotes (I think they may sum up the essence of me better than I could myself):

“Mine, after all, may be an Utopian dream, but being innocent, I have thought I might indulge in it till I go to the land of dreams, and sleep there with the dreamers of all past and future times.”   Thomas Jefferson, 1817

“To laugh often, and love much…to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better…this is to have succeeded.”  Excerpt from a poem attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson
