Quote of the Hour: What Will You Be Remembered For?

I'm not ashamed of this life I've made for myself. Or at least that's what I thought, until this Hall of Fame thing started up. It saddened me in a way I hadn't anticipated. I kept imagining what would happen if my old high school started a Hall of Fame and my name came up for consideration. What would people say? She's an Assistant Principal. She helped her mom when she got sick. That wasn't gonna cut it. Nope. Not good enough. No Hall of Fame for you, Tracy Flick.

You're a nobody.

 - Tom Perrotta, Tracy Flick Can't Win, p.98
