Seriousness of purpose

Danny Watkins, Staff Chaplain

I wanted to share one of my favorite quotes with you that I try to live by:

Seriousness of purpose does not require heaviness of manner. In other words, it doesn’t mean you have to look like a sad dork.

Remaining light on your feet does not contradict, but honors the importance of your work.

And being pleasant, cheerful, and full of good humor will serve as a sure sign of God’s grace.”

-Rev. Fred Craddock Candler School of Theology Emory University


The above favorite quote was submitted by Danny Watkins, Staff Chaplain at UAB since August, 1989.
