Our inner strengths, experiences, and truths cannot be lost, destroyed, or taken away. Every person has an inborn worth and can contribute to the human community. We all can treat one another with dignity and respect, provide opportunities to grow toward our fullest lives and help one another discover and develop our unique gifts. We each deserve this and we all can extend it to others.

Mark Twain

All kings is mostly rapscallions, as fur as I can make out.

Mark Twain
Enthusiasm is caught, not taught.
