Enrico’s quote of the week

Enrico is such a romantic! He’ll be sharing words of wisdom with us here each week. I think he’s hoping for an invite to chauffeur at the Gold Coast conference in 2012!

Love is the only sane and satisfactory answer to the problem of human existence.  ~Eric Fromm (Quote Garden)

Until next week,

Regards Juanita
