The Motto

by Eileen Charde

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
John Charde was a remarkable man who thought outside the box. He inspired all who knew him. He accomplished this with a personal motto: ‘Nothing licks Johnny Charde.’ He knew how to live life to its fullest—every day of his life. This is his story.
Though John Charde was paralyzed from Polio at age six, he never let this define him. Even getting around on crutches for most of his life, there were few places he could not go or things he could not do. He lived with Yankee Ingenuity and a can-do attitude, finding solutions to “challenges” with which the rest of us never have to contend. He even taught himself to sail and became a great sailor. After his death in 2010, his wife found a card in his wallet. It simply read, Motto: Nothing licks Johnny Charde. John Charde knew how to live. Those who knew him claim they would never forget him. Read his inspiring story and you, too, will see the world differently because John Charde truly knew how to live.
