Tony Snow earned a spot in my (quite extensive) text file of favorite quotations when, during an interview discussing his ongoing battle with cancer, he said:
“Fear is a waste of time. The worst that can happen is that we’ll die — which happens to everybody, anyway. Until the Grim Reaper comes knocking, we’re alive.”
The Grim Reaper finally came knocking, But Tony gave him a run for his money…and I’d be willing to bet that he was fearless to the end.
