MORE WORDS WORTH READING

Success is to be reached not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.

 ---Booker T. Washington


But for the "he" rather than she and he or s/he this is a powerful statement. Back then "he" was the norm as women didn't yet count. My college hygiene text has a preface that read:

                           "He who hath himself for a doctor hath a fool for a patient."
                            --Hippocrates

True, but the same applies to the ladies! Obviously, I went to school in the middle ages.


Bye For Now,

Bill
