To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

[I can shake my head and feel sick in the pit of my stomach, but I can’t even make myself smile at his (#DonTheCon) obvious lies and attacks on reality.  Maybe, when he is finally out of office for a few years, I’ll be able to laugh at his bumbling / criminal incompetence and overall ignorance.  But right now, I am too close.  And the bedrock values my country as struggled so long and hard to establish are in danger…   —  KMAB]
