Paul Newman Living in Courage

Paul Newman – what a wonderful courageous life he lived. Fantastic movie career, amazing marriage, charity and restaurant work, racing. Paul and his wife Joanne Woodward have raised over 200 million dollars for charity.  Paul was the heart and soul of Hole in the Wall Camp, and just last year helped 14,000 children go to camp. Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward followed their dreams with courage. Here is a quote by Paul about the camp.

I wish I could recall with clarity the impulse that compelled me to help bring this camp into being. I’d be pleased if I could announce a motive of lofty purpose. I’ve been accused of compassion, of altruism, of devotion to Christian, Hebrew, and Moslem ethic, but however desperate I am to claim ownership of a high ideal, I cannot. I wanted, I think, to acknowledge Luck; the chance of it, the benevolence of it in my life, and the brutality of it in the lives of others, made especially savage for children because they may not be allowed the good fortune of a lifetime to correct it. – Paul Newman.

Authentic comes to mind when I think of Paul Newman, he was a regular guy who was kind and loving to people. Paul, you will be missed around the world. Paul passed October 26th 2008. Journey on in Peace and Love.
