Inspiring Words By George F. Doyle

“Mutual affection and understanding are more important, even more practical goals, than national prosperity or prestige.”

“One of the reasons the past looks better than the present is that we know how it turned out. – It had been raining for several days and we had that feeling that it would never stop. My father remarked that in his whole life, he had experienced only one period of rain that had not ended – which of course was the one were were in at the time.”

“We may not get everything right but we can make things better or worse…”

– George F. Doyle
