In Honor of Stephen R.
Covey, 10/24/1932 - 7/16/2012
In his book The 8th Habit, Mr. Covey eloquently and lovingly
speaks about the family:
"Perhaps the highest way to bring balance to life is the family. The first
and most demanding form of personal growth also takes place in the family and provides the greatest contribution to society...The
most important work you do in your life will be within the walls of your own home. David O. McKay taught, 'No other
success can compensate for failure in the home'...Parenthood is the most important leadership responsibility in life..."
Mr. Covey also asserts the importance of having a clear vision leading to a positive 'family culture' that in
turn is transmitted from generation to generation. Words of wisdom, to be sure.
The mission of Quality
of Life News is to pull together the threads of enlightened, visionary, and empathetic thinking
into a centralized resource for positive action. The symbol of the net conveys a diverse joining together
with a view to the hopeful possibilities beyond.
