  • Funny, isn't it? We're frightened of this emotion, which is, in a sense,

  • the seed of our livelihood.

  • Well, today Miles Massey is here to tell you...

  • that love need cause us no fear.

  • Love need cause us no shame.

  • Love is...

  • good.

  • - Love is good. - [Confused Murmuring]

  • Cynicism, that cloak that advertises our indifference...

  • and hides all human feeling.

  • Well, I'm here to tell you that that cynicism which we think protects us...

  • Do we seek to destroy or build?

  • Do we meet our clients'problems with cynicism...

  • Ladies and gentlemen, this is the last time I will address you...

  • as the president of N.O.M.A. N... or as a member.

  • I intend to devote myself to pro bono work in East Los Angeles...

  • or... one of those other...

  • God bless you all.
