During the days of the first World War, Enrico Caruso was asked if he would sing at a concert for the benefit of the soldiers. The chairman of the committee who invited him said, "Of course, Mr. Caruso, as this is a charity affair, we would not expect you to do your best. Your name will draw the crowd. I would suggest that you merely sing some song requiring little strength or skill."

Caruso is said to have drawn himself up to full height and with vehemence declared, "Caruso never does less than his best."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

Research as proven the power of "connecting." Dr. Lisa Berkman of the Harvard School of Public Health, headed a study that followed the lives of seven thousand people in Alameda County, California, for nine years. They found out "whether the people were married or lived alone, what kind of contact they had with friends and relatives, and whether or not they belonged to a church or other religious organization."

When they looked at the group's risk of dying, "the most isolated people were three times more likely to die in that nine year period than those with stronger social ties."
