"If you can't look in the mirror and see your best friend looking back, you're not going to make it," said humorist and educator Sandy Queen at Cornell's Humor Day Program, March 19. "The whole point is to die as young as possible as late in life as possible."

Speaking in the Statler Auditorium, Queen used humor, anecdotes and reminiscences of her childhood and parenting experiences to bring her message home: "You are good stuff."

Queen is known throughout the United States, Canada and Australia as a dynamic lecturer who has developed many innovative programs in the areas of stress reduction, humor, children's wellness and self-esteem. This was her second appearance at Cornell's Humor Day; she first spoke here 15 years ago.
