Quote: Choosing Civility

Love this quote about what we want to be when we grow up:

I wish that the typical confidence-building talk for the young were amended to sound more or less like this: Yes, you may have the potential to achieve all that you want in life. And, yes, you may even become the president of the United States. However, odds are that you won’t. You will likely become instead an elementary school teacher, a doctor, a bank teller, a bus driver, a janitor, or the regional manager in a midsize company. These jobs are as respectable as that of president. What really matters is that just at the president does in his or her job, you will have the opportunity in yours to find fulfillment and to change for the better the lives of others.

When I grow up, I want to be as happy and loving as my father.
