In addition, Dr. Anthony S. Johnson, who is a prolific author with a growing library of non-fiction and fiction titles to his credit, shared some personal reflections on what defines him as a person, and the biggest life lesson he has learned. With respect to the former, he revealed that empathy, kindness and a sense of humor are pivotal, as is spending time with his wife and their three young children in their suburban Chicago-area home. With respect to the latter, he responded with a salient quote from an early 1920s prose poem by Max Ehrmann: "Whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its shame, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."
"This quote by Max Ehrmann helps me find calm and clarity amidst the confusion and chaos," commented Dr. Anthony S. Johnson, who between 2009 and 2014 served as a Clinical Assistant Professor at Purdue University's College of Veterinary Medicine where he taught a wide range of undergraduate, graduate and professional-level courses. "Working in the veterinary field is incredibly rewarding, but it can also be stressful and challenging. The field is constantly evolving with new technologies, tools, theories and trends. I learned many years ago that it is important to stay balanced and grounded, and not to become overwhelmed or exhausted. Having a wonderful and supportive family, great friends and colleagues, and many hobbies outside of work - two of my personal favorites are eating and sleeping - are also essential!"
