Insigt2Go: Fr. Theodore Hesburgh, who spent 35 years as president of the University of Notre Dame, was a truly remarkable and inspirational leader. I’ve always enjoyed what he said about retirement: “Do as much as you can as well as you can for as long as you can, and don’t complain about the things you can no longer do.”
