"That's what makes us tough. Rich fellas come up and die and their kids ain't no good, and they die out. But we keep a-comin'. We're the people that live. They can't wipe us out. They can't lick us. And we'll go on forever, Pa... 'cause... we're the people."

The Grapes of Wrath (1940)

Great quote. As far as I know our family has never been rich in money, but rich in history and survival. My cousin has traced our family back to the Vikings.

History: Whenever someone would make some sort of mistake, our Tante Marit, would "cluck" and say that "everybody" would turn over in their graves. By everybody she meant from beginning to end of the family. Honor the family.
