About My Father

My father was such a great man.
I miss him so much. 
He spoke at least a dozen languages.
I remember so well him saying to me, "Maurice, there is nothing that will make you feel more stupid than going to someone's country without being able to speak their language."

Reach the Heart

 This Nelson Mandela quote has continued to inspire me throughout my career: 

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head.
 If you talk to him in HIS language, that goes to his heart."
