Dan’s Wednesday Quote of the Week #35 – Michael Douglas, UCSB alum

When asked What do you most want your kids and grandkids to learn from you? Michael Douglas said,

A work ethic. Courtesy to your fellow human beings. And kindness. Which are traits you have to work at and rehearse. Particularly compassion – I feel a certain responsibility to conduct myself as somebody who has been blessed and fortunate simply because I was born a white male. And also to teach them to be good citizens of the planet. I’m conscious of us all being in this together.
