A. Oh, I don't have a motto, and I don't read maxim ;) Really, life is too fluid for me to pick one motto and stick to it. I adapt.
A. It's impossible to pick just one. From a distance, people who devote their lives to improving their world and speak their mind even when it scares them. Close up, there are many people in my life I greatly admire.
A. You'd have to ask the people around me. I write more than I talk.
A. Not giving up. I'm still working on that one. It's kind of a lifelong process.
A. Brilliance, compassion and humor.
