Quotes of the Day for 11 October 2000 – Estate Planning

Last night my wife and I attended a dinner sponsored by our church. The purpose was a presentation on Estate Planning, how to transfer the greatest possible residue of life's rewards to your heirs and charitable goals. The dinner was very good, and though I have no estate to plan it started me thinking and gave me a theme for today.

There are two lasting bequests we can give our children. One is roots. The other is wings.
     - Hodding Carter, Jr.

     - Robert Fulghum

If you haven't any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.
