People we admire the most

fisheadAugust 24, 2004

I admire grasshopper (from Kung Fu - the shao lin preiset) and Paul McCartney.

What about y'all????

Also, Clint Eastwood from Pale Rider.

I feel like I should be admiring some women, I guess Michelle Shocked and Jane Goodall.

John Glenn. Astronaut and *my* (Ohio) long-time Senator. Not many politicians get on my list of personal heroes...

Thich Nhat Hanh is first that comes to mind.

I'd like to be as organized as Fly Lady too! ;) Is just not an Aries characteristic :P

I'm an Aries, and I'm the most organized person I know! LOL Maybe I need a life!

Among the living: Stephen Hawking, Tasha Tudor, Bill Gates, Laura Bush, most soldiers and most Olympic athletes, Prince William, Paul McCartney also, my step-mother, and Sebastian Faulks for starters.

I began thinking of those I admire who have passed on, but where can one even begin this list?

Michael: Why Darrow? I'm just curious.

I read his biography when I was just starting college. Probably ruined my life because I admired his sense of Justice. As you probably know much of the world still hates him and people like him.

I could probably also toss out a name like Abraham Lincoln because he was another one of those do-gooder lawyers that thought Justice the property of all men.

I wasn't aware that people hated Clarence Darrow. I don't remember much about him except that he loved poetry, ran for office and lost by about 100-200 votes or so, and was the champion of poor people. I think I'll read his biography too. I love biographies and autobiographies -- in general, anything historical including historical fiction.

No way Kay!

It might just be you haven't discovered yourself yet or maybe is just one of those Aries/Myers/Briggs things.

I admire those people with principles the very most.
