    Made with Notepad

    "One of the greatest things my parents did for me was to encourage every one of my ambitions…They made those dreams seem a lot more attainable by giving me lessons in golf and basketball….boxing, dancing, swimming, skating, water skiing, tennis, baseball, ping-pong and bowling. I also got help from the experts in public speaking, piano playing and writing. I have no doubt that if I had expressed interest in card tricks, scuba diving or astronomy, they would have found teachers for those, too." ~Harvey Mackay
