  1. Reminds me of that line from the 2004 film “Flight of the Phoenix” with Dennis Quaid ….

    β€œI think a man only needs one thing in life. He just needs someone to love. If you can’t give him that, then give him something to hope for. And if you can’t give him that, just give him something to do.”
    Scott Michael Campbell – James Liddle


      1. By all means go ahead Penny – it’s a film quote – it’s a line l heard when the film came out and l thought dang! That is so fitting πŸ™‚

        Use it as much as you wish.


  2. Thanks for posting this, Penny! It’s very uplifting.

    I’ve always loved Tom Bodett. I discovered him (as most people did) from his Motel 6 commercials. Later, I read a book he wrote called, “The Big Garage on Clear Shot” and really enjoyed it. He has a very distinctive “writing voice” as well as his actual voice.
