A bit of cultural representation in that lot Cathy ,but weren’t you a previous studier of that old classical German phrase in the following?
“Es ist nicht so, wie weit Sie kommen, dass Fragen. Es ist, wie weit Sie kommen aus, wo Sie waren”

Methinks it says the same in your “it’s not how far”……….. Well thought none the less ED

I had no idea that there was an Irish  Neil Kinnock too as it says in one of your quotes Cathy.
Just pondering on it but I did enjoy reading your quotes.   Always food for thought.
Thank you.
