My father was an English professor and poet who exposed me at an early age to the love of language and great literature.

Robert S. McNamara
“All the evidence of history suggests that man is indeed a rational animal, but with a near infinite capacity for folly. . . . He draws blueprints for Utopia, but never quite gets it built.

Robert S. McNamara

Alfred Tennyson
“Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;

Alfred Lord Tennyson, Idylls of the King and a Selection of Poems

Mahatma Gandhi
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi
