Oveta Culp Hobby
“Give me my sword.”
“A purpose gives meaning to life. It is like the hub in a wheel — with every spoke fitted into it to make a strong and perfect circle. Without such a hub, spokes will not radiate evenly and your wheel will lack strength, will tend to break apart on the first good bump it hits. Given a strong hub, a strong purpose, a person can take a surprising number of shocks and bumps on the outside rim without sustaining permanent damage.”
Oveta Culp Hobby, U.S. cabinet member, government official, WAC officer, newspaper board member
(1905 - 1995)
