Personal Motto/Favorite Quote(s):
My darling girl, when are you going to understand that being normal is not a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage.
--Aunt Francis, "Practical Magic"

Capacities clamor to be used, and cease their clamor only when they are well used. That is, capacities are also needs. Not only is it fun to use our capacities, but it is also necessary. The unused capacity or organ can become a disease center or else atrophy, thus diminishing the person.
--Abraham Maslow

Pet(s):A black and gray mackerel tabby 10-lb kitty named Rajah who actually loves to ride in the car with me. He also has exercise-induced asthma.
