Louis V. Gerstner, Jr.
In football, every play, play after play, there's that physicality. Football players only play once a week, so they must really need to rest. That does kind of tell you how physical the sport is. But in hockey, you have the boards. I just couldn't say which is more physical.
I'm on a lot of nonprofit boards, but if I didn't enjoy it I wouldn't do it. I haven't yet done anything that's transformational in philanthropy. But I hope at some point to target two or three causes or organizations and really make transformational gifts.
So be encouraged and dedicate yourself to your dream and if your dream should come my way one day then we will dance upon the boards of life.

Theatres are built because they were the boards for entertainment.
