I inherited from my father his way of looking at things and some of his integrity, and from my mother her dissatisfaction with the mess the world is in and some of her versatility. From both I got capacities for work and vision and enjoyment and expressions that ought to have made me some kind of King, if the standards the world lives by were the real ones. Not that we ever had any money: but any fool knows that you don’t need money to get enjoyment out of life.

Thanks I needed that. And, well, Kansas!
Yes to Kansas!!! 🙂 Happy to oblige.
Sound like good things to inherit
I liked that list, it made me wonder what I have inherited from my parents! 🙂
