Mrs. Williamson's favorite quote is

If you can’t be a pine on the top of the hill,
Then be a shrub in the valley that be,
But be the best shrub in the valley that be,

If you can’t be a shrub be a bush,

If you can’t be a highway, then just be a trail,
If you can’t be a sun, be a star;
It isn’t by size that you win or you fail…
Be the best of whatever you are!- Byron Garrett
