Al Gore 1948
Democrat Al Gore conceded the extraordinarily close 2000 presidential race with a memorable quote from his father: “No matter how hard the loss, defeat might serve as well as victory to shape the soul and let the glory out.”

Gordie Howe 1928
Mark noticed what he called a “big decline” in Howe’s mental health last summer. Still, when Mark would go out to exercise, his dad would come along.
“He can walk fine,” Mark said. “If I go for a run, he can walk 3.5 miles no problem. Doesn’t even sweat. He’s still incredibly strong. He still has great endurance.”
*Walk 3.5 miles on the treadmill while reading a book to keep your mind sharp too.
Cesar Chavez 1927
“Kindness and compassion toward all living things is a mark of a civilized society.”
*Continue to strive to show kindness and compassion to all living things. Think of donating to the Chavez Foundation.

The overall take away THE GREATEST THING YOU’LL EVER LEARN IS JUST TO LOVE AND BE LOVED IN RETURN. Beautifully said. Warning: If you can’t take and appreciate this lovely statement, then you may not enjoy the movie.
*Appreciate that the greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return and then enjoy watching Moulin Rouge.
