My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Let me be worthy of my horses.
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. I dunno! There are so many to choose from!
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. I used to identify with Joan of Arc, but I don't think I would have stood the course, never having been a person of strong faith. Lately the person I'd most like to talk to is General George Marshall.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. Nothing, I hope. I like to keep in the background.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Teaching! It's not a fantasy, but I came to it very late. It looked pretty terrible from the outside, like nothing a sane person would want to do. (Actually, sometimes it looks like that from the inside too.) (But not often.) To be the conduit into the big Ongoing Conversation for somebody who's struggling to find a place in the world--it's a high like no other.
