"I envy people with dreams and passions, but I don't think that way. I still don't have a 'bliss' to follow.

That's hard enough... but it's enough."

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."Jane Pauley on Harriet Tubman

"About the time I turned 50, I experienced the profound biological change that often accompanies women at that age. Also, I put two kids in college and lost both of my parents, so I'm no longer somebody's daughter."
"My father was so good-natured and had such a happy disposition. I've always confused him with Jimmy Stewart. So, think Jimmy Stewart. That's my dad."
"My parents had an experience of life that is as opposite to mine as you can imagine."
