My philosophy of Life can be summarized by two quotes I like a lot: “Carpe Diem” which is a Latin aphorism, usually translated "seize the day", taken from book 1 of the Roman poet Horace's work Odes (23 BC). And “You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.” by Napoleon Hill.
Dolly loves reading all kinds of books, learning new languages, watching movies, sharing time with her husband and friends and working out.
