Best tribute character not words

Quote of the day:

The death of Jock Hobbs underscores why people say at funerals that the best tribute we can pay someone is not words but the character of our own lives. Trying to be better is the best way to recognise his life, and that of Owen McShane, whose funeral was on Tuesday.

Owen’s intellect and willingness to challenge the myths of his age were unsurpassed. It’s the measure of a small society that those who should have listened more closely, did not pay Owen greater heed when he was alive. Jim Hopkins
