In either late 1975 or early 1976 George Jessel was on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. Johnny was giving George a hard time about being called the "Toastmaster General of the United States".
To which George made a statement I wrote down and have long since lost but have never forgotten. George said "I've been fortunate to have lived a long life, but whats more important, I've lived a wide life. After all, if when you get to the end of your life if you turn around and look back and are disappointed, you have a right to be; you made it that way".
Have a good day.
