"Attitudes are more important than abilities. Motives are more important than methods. Character is more important than cleverness. And the heart takes precedence over the head."

Denis Parsons Burkitt, 1911-1993

(Dr. Burkitt was an Irishman who drove across sub-Saharan Africa in his beat up Ford pick up truck. He found many African kids between the ages of 5 and 8 years who had deadly facial tumors. He biopsied the tumor and it was found to be caused by a virus. Who would have thought that a virus could cause a cancer now called Burkitt's lymphoma?)
