Philosophy of Life
"An American Religion: Work, play, breathe,

During the panic immediately following the impact, one of the other passengers asked the couple what they were going to do. Hubbard smiled and said, "There does not seem to be anything to do." And with that he and his wife waited calmly for their fate. They ended up going down with the ship. I wonder- could we accept our impending deaths so matter-of-factly?
