I like this response someone made towards people that say nobody takes Honorary Degrees serious.

Show them how." – Anonymous "The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention." – Oscar Wilde "That best portion of a good man's life: his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of ...

The more of it one has the more one wants.” Benjamin Franklin "You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal.
