it is needed, there is such a desperate urgency about it that the recipient often does not have time to thank the giver. In talking about any charity, you must give from your heart, and any other type of giving is a terrible cheat on life itself. I think somewhere deep in the consciousness of things, such dishonesty is felt.
In walking around the hill on the plain each day of my life, the virtues I see, whether I am in London, Paris, Rome, Cairo, New York, Hollywood, or Wahoo, Nebraska, are always the same. I am grateful for those old-fashioned virtues that I learned as a boy in Nebraska, and I hope I will have enough humility always to be thankful I was born in a country that gave me this chance at life.
