“I do not know what happiness is, and I do not think it is important that we be happy. But it is important that you find your work and do it as if you were sent into the WORLD at this precise moment in history to do your job. If happiness can be achieved, it will be found in a job well done and in giving and not in receiving” _ Dr. Benjamin E. Mays
