The measure of a man is not determined
By his show of outward strength
Or the volume of his voice
Or the thunder of his actions
Or of his intellect or academic abilities

It is seen rather in terms of the love that he has
For his family and for everyone
The strength of his commitments
The genuiness of his friendships
The sincerity of his purpose
The quiet courage of his convictions

The fun, laughter,
Joy and happiness he gives to his
family and to others

His love of life
His patience and his honesty
And his contentment with what he has.
Grady Poulard
