Tuva or Bust!

Here's an interesting quote from Tuva or Bust!--a book by Ralph Leighton about his and Richard Feynman's dream to visit Tannu Tuva:
As we relaxed in the serenity of the baths overlooking the ocean, Richard suddenly cried, "Thank you, Dr. Morton!" The Chief never forgot that he was living on borrowed time, and often thanked the man most responsible for it in the same way that others would thank God for giving them another fine day.
Thanksgiving has just passed but I hope that, like Richard Feynman, you continue to thank those who most appropriately deserve it!
