Barbara Bush – wife of one president and mother of another – died Tuesday at age 92.
Recognized for her no-nonsense style, Barbara Bush described her time as First Lady as the “best job in America.”
“Every single day was interesting, rewarding, and sometimes just plain fun,” she added.
Here are some WORDS of WISDOM we can all live by:
“If human beings are perceived as potentials rather than problems, as possessing strengths instead of weaknesses, as unlimited rather that dull and unresponsive, then they thrive and grow to their capabilities.”
— Bush’s quote from her biography page at the George H.W. Presidential Library
“Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people – your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way.”
“You just don’t luck into things as much as you’d like to think you do. You build step by step, whether it’s friendships or opportunities.”
“Some people give time, some money, some their skills and connections, some literally give their life’s blood. But everyone has something to give.”
“At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.”
— Bush’s commencement address at Wellesley College on June 1, 1990, per the Texas Tribune.
May she R.I.P. and her words LIVE ON…
