“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
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
