Meandering around . . .

Today is the birthday of Paul Leonard Newman (January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008), actor, film director, entrepreneur, humanitarian, and auto racing enthusiast.

"I don't think there's anything exceptional or noble in being philanthropic. It's the other attitude that confuses me." - Paul Newman

"I had no natural gift to be anything — not an athlete, not an actor, not a writer, not a director, a painter of garden porches — not anything. So I've worked really hard, because nothing ever came easily to me." - Paul Newman

"A man can only be judged by his actions, and not by his good intentions or his beliefs." - Paul Newman

"I'd like to be remembered as a guy who tried — tried to be part of his times, tried to help people communicate with one another, tried to find some decency in his own life, tried to extend himself as a human being. Someone who isn't complacent, who doesn't cop out." - Paul Newman
