Athol Dickson
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Do to others what you would want them to do to you.

Q. Which living person do you most admire?

A. My wife is my hero.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Professor Moriarty comes to mind.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. You mean other than Jesus, right? So next I suppose I'd go with Abraham Lincoln. I have a little statue of him on my desk. As for what I'd say . . . I think I'd ask him how he coped with the war years. Come to think of it, I'd like to meet Winston Churchill and ask him the same thing. Both men faced periods when they were almost completely alone in their decisions, and the choices they were forced to make were horrifying, yet somehow they persevered. I'd love to know where they found that strength of character.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Time lost in worry and self pity.
