"But more and more I believe it's our impact on individuals that matters most. I want to use my wealth and my life for that purpose, not to add to my personal comforts. I've got too much of everything as it is. Every single thing we own actually owns us in some way or another -- they all have to be cleaned, or maintained, or fixed, or appraised, or insured, or some such thing. It all takes time and that, I've realized, is an absolute finite commodity. Wasted time can't be redeemed. And a wasted life? Well, that's a tragedy."
~ Abigail speaking to her friends about wanting to make an impact in life that includes things besides funding libraries and hospitals and women's shelters.
