  5. Before my time as a volunteer and now while working part time to help people who are homeless or very poor…. without these experiences I would be totally wrapped up in self-centeredness, miserable, decaying, and worthless to society.

    Hi Mitch! I like that one from Helen Mirren. I was reading Aristotle’s poetics in preparation for a post on my classical ed blog, and was much struck by his explanation that character is born in to us, but actions are a person’s choice and will define whether you are happy or not. I found that very positive. Great list of quotes for the day! Thanks.
