From Denny: So often society measures the worth of a person by how many things they own, the high price those "things" cost, and how quickly they are acquired. Here is another more truthful definition of greatness by a female civil rights leader who was honored at a leadership conference.

Greatness is not measured by what a man or woman accomplishes, but by the opposition he or she has to overcome to reach his [or her] goals.” – Dr. Dorothy Height, honoree at Leadership Conference on Civil Rights
