“At the end
only two things really matter to a man,
regardless of who he is;
and they are the affection
and understanding of his family.
Anything and everything else he creates
are insubstantial;
they are ships given over
to the mercy of the winds
and tides of prejudice.
But the family is an everlasting anchorage,
a quiet harbor where a man’s ships
can be left to swing to the moorings
of pride and loyalty.”

~ Richard E. Byrd
