“In college, Professor Brickhouse, who taught math; but it was his philosophy, not the subject: He urged me to explore the world and learn everything I can. I’m still endeavoring to learn new things at age 72.”

“My fourth-grade teacher, Ms. Lovewell, because she encouraged creativity, especially in writing, literature, and the arts. She was a cellist and in her footsteps one of my sons plays the cello, another the violin, and my daughter plays the piano. They all perform in symphonies.”
