I'm proud to follow the Doughty family tradition of journalism and public service.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow-creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
— Ettiene De Grellet
