“Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap.”
William J. Bennett

“There are no menial jobs, only menial attitudes.”
William J. Bennett, The Death of Outrage: Bill Clinton and the Assault on American Ideals

“A falsehood can run around the world while the truth is still putting its shoes on.”
Bill Bennett
