Emerson Quote

 The quote reads: "To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” [Yahoo news article on Jeff Bezos]

several #include <iostreams>

disabled 'treat errors as warnings'.


several live objects after sample executes/shuts down, not going to resolve at this time.
