Who Said That?

Florida's quote of the day

| 9/2/2014

"I've been to a thousand funerals. I've never seen a U-Haul hooked up to a hearse."

-- John Morgan

The worst day of John Morgan's life was when his brother snapped his neck diving into a Walt Disney World lagoon while working as a lifeguard. It left him a quadriplegic.

That day also set Morgan, the man behind Florida's medical marijuana ballot initiative, on a course that would make him a wealthy and locally famous personal injury lawyer.

Today, Morgan doesn't hide his wealth; he's generous with it. He has a you-can't-take-it-with-you attitude about his millions. "I've been to a thousand funerals. I've never seen a U-Haul hooked up to a hearse," he said.
