A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?

A Few Words of Wisdom – 12 January 2007
By Mary T. Hoffman

“How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young; compassionate with the aged; sympathetic of the striving & tolerant of the weak & the strong. Because someday in life, you will have been all of these.”
